College of Mount Saint Vincent Launches New MBA Program
Riverdale, NY – The College of Mount Saint Vincent is pleased to announce the launch of a new Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) program, starting September 2009. The MBA is open to all students, including those interested in pursuing a 5 year concentration, those currently enrolled at other institutions, recent graduates, working professionals, community residents looking to acquire additional business skills and institutions or organizations seeking to strengthen their leadership.
The College will also roll out a five-year graduate/Certified Public Accountant (CPA) program. Students who graduate from the program will earn their B.S. in Accounting, an MBA, and will be eligible, with 150 credit hours, to sit for the CPA exam.
The Mount’s MBA offers non-traditional tracks such as Health Care Administration, Management and Organizational Behavior, as well as International Business. Future tracks include Not-for-profit Management, Educational Administration and Human Resource Management.
According to Ed Meyer, Dean of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies at the Mount, “In these difficult economic times, it makes sense to ride out the storm by getting an MBA. Students will emerge from this program ready to compete in a new market with a recognized skill set and be connected to a solid network of professionals.”
The MBA Program is designed with the student’s needs in mind. MBA programs are traditionally designed to permit an individual with any undergraduate major to enter and students can choose their concentration.
