March 14, 2014

Mesa, Arizona ~ Students who believed a graduate business education was beyond their reach due to high costs will want to attend a Benedictine University’s $10K M.B.A. Open House to learn how to earn an affordable advanced degree from a reputable University with a history of educating values-based business leaders.

Benedictine University at Mesa is inviting interested students to attend a $10K M.B.A. Open House from 5:30-7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 27 at Gillett Hall, located at 225 E. Main St. in downtown Mesa.

During the event, interested students can meet with an admissions counselor to review program requirements and will be provided with an overview of the University’s hybrid M.B.A. model, which has traditional classroom and online components. The program is designed for students with at least five years of work experience in business, industry, public service, military service or other professional employment.

“This is such a unique opportunity that we want to make sure people are aware of how it works and how they can take advantage of it,” said Michelle Koppitz, vice president of Adult and Professional Programs at Benedictine University.
