With a blizzard bearing down on the East Coast in early February, the Fordham Management Institute’s “Highlights of the MBA” remained snowbound. But the Graduate School of Business Administration (GBA) program will come out swinging this weekend, March 1st and 2nd, when the first of two weekend sessions will be held at the Westchester Campus.
This unique program offers an intense sprint through the highlights of Fordham’s well-established Executive MBA program, and furthers the Westchester campus’ developing reputation as a center for executive thinking.
“This course is positioned for professionals who do not have the luxury of time for the MBA but need some of the content for their current positions,” explained Francis Petit, Ed.D., the associate dean for executive programs at GBA.
Rooted in the fundamentals of business management, the weekend sessions seek to improve participants’ leadership skills and cue them in to cutting edge business conversations.
Petit said this years participants represent an advanced group from a diversity of industries. With an average of 17 years work experience between them, the group is curated in a manner that the participants will likely learn as much from each other as they will from their highly qualified instructors.
