Ilitch School graduate programs team to present at professional conference

Three staff members in the Graduate Programs Office of the WSU Mike Ilitch School of Business have had a proposal accepted to present at the American College Personnel Association Michigan Annual Conference on October 17.

The presenters are Graduate Programs Office Assistant Director Veronica Seatts, and Academic Advisors Shanese Ross and Melissa Sweda. The proposal, titled “Beyond the Box: Creating new opportunities to increase enrollment,” will discuss how Wayne State’s MBA program increased enrollment 85 percent within two years. The topics discussed include advantages and challenges associated with program modifications, supporting non-traditional students with creative course delivery and strategies to manage increased enrollment.
