The Frank G. Zarb School of Business Launches The First Online MBA Degree Program on Long Island
MBA Degree in Strategic Business Management; Program Taught by Full-Time FacultyHofstra University, Hempstead, New York –The Frank G. Zarb School of Business launches the first Online MBA Program on Long Island at Hofstra University with a focus in Strategic Business Management. The program is taught by full-time faculty members and has a global and industry focus with residency requirements that include interaction with New York City industry leaders and global corporations.
“As part of the Zarb focus on students, we are continually building and introducing new programs and courses that allow our students to stay on the cutting edge of business. Many of our graduate students are working professionals who rely heavily on a flexible program -- a program that allows them to continue their studies while also continuing their professional careers,” said Zarb School of Business Dean Patrick Socci. “This Online MBA Program is tailored for those students who are trying to advance their education and career without leaving their current location and position.”
The small class sizes of the Online MBA program provide a seamless interaction between faculty members and students and the flexibility of the program exists in its cohort program option, which allows for a completion of the degree within two years.
“We have an exciting global strategic business management focus for the program and the online components are supplemented with two one-week residencies at Hofstra’s New York location, providing opportunities to network with local industry leaders and our alumni base. A one-week foreign trip consisting of multiple business visits is also an integral part of this program and will provide a strong foundation to the global dimension of the program,” said Executive Director of the Online MBA Program and Associate Professor of Management, Entrepreneurship and General Business, Dr. Kaushik Sengupta. “We believe that these components add significant value to the program and will provide the necessary knowledge and exposure to the students in this era of global business, allowing them to succeed in their professional careers.”
The Online MBA program is now accepting applications for the Fall 2011 semester. For more information on this program visit www.hofstra.edu/onlinemba . For more information on the Frank G. Zarb School of Business and other graduate programs they offer please visit www.hofstra.edu/zarb .
