Alumni invited to MBA Information Session, Leaders on Leadership classes

The Providence College School of Business (PCSB) invites alumni and friends seeking to expand their career opportunities to learn more about the College’s enhanced MBA Program at its April 6 information session, and to experience the program firsthand by attending one of its signature Leaders on Leadership classes on April 7 or 14.

The Wednesday, April 6, MBA Information Session—designed to answer questions from prospective applicants already in their careers—will be held from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the Barnini Meeting Room, LL12, of Harkins Hall on the Providence College campus. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m.

“PC’s School of Business is reaching out, in particular, to those already on a career path who want to expand their career options and promotional opportunities by earning an MBA degree,” said Dr. MaryJane Lenon, MBA Program director.

In addition to Lenon, faculty, current students, and staff members will be available to answer questions about PC’s real-world, practice-based curriculum that offers elective areas of concentration in accountancy, finance, international business, management, marketing, and non-profit organizations. New courses in leadership and social entrepreneurship are part of the new curriculum. Part-time and full-time programs feature flexible late afternoon and evening classes.

The MBA Program application fee will be waived for attendees who apply that evening.
