School of Management to offer new MBA program| December 7, 2010
Binghamton University’s Fast-Track Professional MBA Program offered in New York City has been a success. In response to inquiries from non-SOM alumni with an interest in earning an MBA while maintaining their full-time employment, the School of Management is initiating an 18-month executive MBA program that will begin in September 2011.
School of Management faculty, widely known for teaching excellence, will serve as instructors for the program, which will take place at a convenient location in midtown Manhattan with classes on Saturdays. Because of the cohort nature of the program, participants will enter together and serve as resources to each other throughout the program and beyond. To facilitate the sharing of participant knowledge and experience as well as to create an active learning environment, space in the program is limited.
