Information Sessions Scheduled for Prospective Full-time and Evening MBA Students

March 19, 2014---The College of Business and Economics at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls will hold two information sessions for those interested in learning more about earning a master's degree in business administration through our part-time/evening or full-time MBA programs. 

The full-time MBA information session is set for Wednesday, April 2, at 6 p.m. and the part-time MBA information session for Wednesday, April 9, at 6 p.m. 

Both sessions will be at the UW-River Falls Hudson Center, 2501 Hanley Road, Suite 200C, Hudson. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Director of Graduate Studies Leanne Van Allen and with other prospective MBA students. Both MBA programs offer the following distinguishing features to prospective students:  

  • Curriculum that combines business theory with hands-on application; Scheduling that supports each program (flexible options for the evening program and daytime classes for the full-time 18-month program); 
  • Classes conveniently located at the Hudson Center, minutes from Woodbury, Stillwater, St. Paul, and Western Wisconsin; 
  • A degree that is held to rigorous standards under AACSB International accreditation, which fewer than five percent of the world's business schools possess. 

The full-time MBA program permits students to earn their MBA in 18 months. This program is particularly suited for recent undergraduate and international students looking to enter the workforce with a competitive edge. Recent accounting graduates also benefit from this program as it provides them with the required 150 credits and the opportunity to sit in on the CPA exam. 

The 18-month program focuses on mentorship and a small, exceptional group of students. The program culminates with the practicum, a collaboration with businesses in the St. Croix Valley to address real-world business challenges and to identify solutions. The new Center of Innovation and Business Development (CIBD) and the CIBD director, supported by the College of Business and Economics, will work in partnership with local businesses and the MBA students to identify and develop mutually-beneficial practicum projects. These projects will bring great value to the businesses while providing full-time MBA students the ability to gain hands-on experience. 

The evening MBA program is ideal for individuals who desire professional advancement without interrupting their careers, seek to open new doorways to opportunities in an upcoming career change, or recognize the value of an MBA to becoming more effective in their current employment. The support of our distinguished faculty and strong networking ability adds great value for working professionals in the program.
