Sacred Heart University’s John F. Welch College of Business will be hosting an Information Session on Wednesday, July 29th at 6:00 p.m. in the Office of Graduate Admissions, Curtis Hall, 5151 Park Avenue, Fairfield.

MBA Director Anthony Macari will discuss the Welch MBA’s distinctive and innovative curriculum, its focus on global business practices, ethics and experiential learning, and an attention to each student’s professional planning and goals. He will also be available to answer questions.

The Welch MBA is designed for working professionals who aspire to leadership positions in today's global economy. According to Dr. John J. Petillo, dean of the Welch College of Business, this fall’s class will consist of students whose “work experience and academic achievements are an indicator of their potential, desire and vision for the future.”

For candidates with a business degree from an accredited college or university, the MBA can be accomplished in 36 credits; others will need to complete two additional courses. Entering students will be assessed to measure management skills, communication skills and content knowledge to help determine their curricular plan. The integrated core will consist of a number of intensive programs to develop cross-functional skills. Finance, marketing, operations and accounting will be taught simultaneously in a “business process” approach.
