Hofstra to Launch Full-Time Day M.B.A.
Frank G. Zarb School of Business to begin new program in fall 2008
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY – Hofstra University's Frank G. Zarb School of Business will launch a new full-time integrated day M.B.A. program next fall that will take full advantage of the school’s sophisticated technology, experienced faculty, growing alumni network and proximity to New York City.
Students in the program will learn, work and study together in small, seminar-style classes led by highly regarded scholar-educators. They will take advantage of personalized career support services, enriched internships throughout the New York City area and an integrated, interdisciplinary capstone experience. And they will have access to state-of-the-art facilities, including one of the largest academic trading rooms in the U.S., with 34 Bloomberg Professional terminals.
"We plan to teach our students the skills necessary to effectively interact with one another and with the various constituencies in the corporate world. This will better prepare them for life in the business arena," said Zarb School of Business Dean Salvatore F. Sodano. "We will also enhance their academic experience here through internships, by bringing accomplished professionals to campus as speakers and through connections with our vast network of successful Zarb alumni."
Hofstra will hold two information sessions on the new program on Sunday, December 9, 2007 from 11:00 to 12:30 p.m. and from 12:45 to 2:15 p.m. in the east lobby of C.V. Starr Hall, California Avenue, South Campus. Refreshments will be served. Prospective students can speak with Dean Sodano, former head of the American Stock Exchange (Amex) and former vice chairman of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD). For more information and directions, call 1-800-HOFSTRA.
Dean Sodano said the full-time integrated M.B.A. program will offer substantial scholarship opportunities for high-achieving students and opportunities for honors scholar designation. The new program joins the executive and traditional M.B.A. programs offered at the Zarb School, including Sports and Entertainment Management, Health Services Management and Quality Management.
