Season’s greetings from West Lafayette! The holidays can be a very exciting time of year. It’s a time to spend with family and friends and to give thanks to those most important in our lives. It can also be a time to reflect and plan for the future. Is my career on track? Am I enjoying the work I’m doing? Am I still learning? What’s my career trajectory? If these questions raise more questions than answers, perhaps we can help. Purdue has recently launched a one-year MBA program geared for professionals in scientific, technology and engineering fields.
The one-year MBA for STEM professionals is designed to provide those with a technically-oriented academic and early career background with the business and leadership skills required to start or lead technology-centered organizations. After completing a rigorous business core, students have flexibility to customize their learning experience through a wide variety of professional electives, some of which will be taught jointly by business and engineering, science and/or technology faculty. In addition, students will augment knowledge gained in the classroom through participation in active learning projects with leading and emerging technology organizations. The program includes many elements found in traditional MBA programs, including leadership training, access to career services, opportunities to study abroad and the ability to participate in professional and social clubs with other masters students at Krannert. The inaugural class starts this June and applications are being accepted through April 15, 2014, or until the class is filled.
If you are interested in learning how you can earn your MBA at Purdue by May 2015, I encourage you to contact us today.
