M.B.A. Open House showcases SBA for prospective grad students

More than 100 prospective students filled Wayne State’s McGregor Memorial Conference Center on Tuesday, June 24, for the School of Business Administration’s M.B.A. Open House.

In addition to the M.B.A., the event also showcased the M.S. in Accounting, M.S. in Taxation and Graduate Certificate Program. It also introduced prospective students to just some of the resources available to them as they get started – from WSU’s GMAT prep course to the Office of Graduate Admissions.

In addition, faculty members from each department were on hand to answer questions students had about specific academic programs. Their presence was the real difference maker, according to Amber Conway, director of the SBA Graduate Programs Office.

"Everywhere I looked, our professors were actively engaging a prospective student and making sure all of their questions were answered," Conway said. "I think the prospective students really appreciated that one-on-one contact."
