College of Business Administration Holds Graduate Program Information Night

Posted Mar. 11, 2013

Kent State University’s College of Business Administration will hold Graduate Programs Information Night on March 18 in Room 310 of the Kent Student Center on the Kent Campus, and a Stark MBA Night on March 21 in Room 234 of the University Center at Kent State University at Stark, from 6 to 8 p.m. on both evenings. The information nights are free and open to anyone interested.

Each program will provide an overview of graduate curriculum, admission requirements, application deadlines, graduate assistantships and financial aid options for the College of Business Administration.

“This event is geared for prospective graduate students,” says Louise Ditchey, graduate programs administrator for the College of Business Administration. “The evening begins with a presentation of all business graduate programs, followed by individual program breakout sessions allowing for more specific one on one questions and advising.”

The information night at the Kent Campus will focus on the full-time and part-time MBA programs, including the Executive MBA, as well as the Master of Science in Accounting (MSA), Master of Arts in Economics (MAE) and the Ph.D. program in Business Administration. The Kent State Stark event will focus only on the MBA program.

“Most attendees have been considering a graduate degree for some time and have many questions.  The information night allows attendees to weigh the benefits of one program over another to find the one that best meets their needs and lifestyle,” says Ditchey.

Felecia Urbanek, program coordinator for the College of Business and Administration, says each year the audience is mainly made up of people commuting from Cleveland, Akron and Youngstown. Plus, many Kent State staff attend looking to continue their education.
