WCU to hold MBA information sessions in Cherokee

CULLOWHEE – Western Carolina University’s master’s degree program in business administration is offering information sessions in Cherokee for prospective students who are interested in attending classes at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort.

WCU is accepting part-time students to begin the MBA program in spring of 2014. Courses are offered in state-of-the-art training facilities at the resort’s Harrah’s Cherokee Hotel, and the program can be completed by part-time students in 34 months.

Information sessions will be held in the hotel’s Ash Room from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, and from 4-5p.m. Wednesday, April 24. Individual appointments also are available, as well as on-site information sessions at other area businesses.

Kelly McIntyre, graduate programs manager for WCU’s College of Business, will lead the information sessions and discuss the advantages of WCU’s “hands-on” MBA, which focuses on the unique challenges facing the region and its economy.

There are no prerequisites for the program, which is designed to be integrative and interdisciplinary with a goal of creating independent, lifelong learners who are “business ready” to assume leadership positions, McIntyre said.

Each event will include a presentation and question-and-answer session. Individuals who plan to attend a session are asked to register by emailing Inquiries about individual appointments and on-site information sessions should be sent to the same address.
