MBA Program Named Most Affordable
Dr. Michele Gee directs master's programs at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and serves as the associate dean in the university's College of Business, Economics, and Computing. She expressed great pride in the announcement by TopManagementDegrees.com naming the UW-Parkside M.B.A. program as one of the nation's most affordable.
"We are proud that our M.B.A. program, which is already recognized for quality with accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International, is now acknowledged as one of the most affordable graduate business programs in the country," Dr. Gee said.
Business education rankings from TopManagmentDegrees.com are designed to help prospective students make a smart choice about where to invest their time and money. The organization is committed to connecting people to inspiring ideas and high-quality educational opportunities.
"Our alumni significantly contribute to the Wisconsin economy primarily in Racine and Kenosha counties," Dr. Gee said. "Yet their influence extends throughout the Milwaukee-Chicago business corridor. They hold prominent executive and professional positions in companies such as Modine Manufacturing, Abbott Labs, SC Johnson, CNH Industrial, Northwestern Mutual, and Aurora Healthcare to cite just a few examples."
In addition to a regional focus, UW-Parkside has entered into an increasing number of exchange agreements with universities in countries around the world including China, India, Germany, Finland, Italy, Australia, and Russia. "These global exchanges help to internationalize our classrooms, and provide education opportunities for our graduate students who participate in study-abroad tours and courses," Dr. Gee said. "This is very important in the interconnected world of business, and equips our M.B.A. alumni with experiences, global awareness, knowledge and skills valued by many employers."
Graduate students in UW-Parkside's M.B.A. program have great flexibility to customize their own learning experience by selecting from a wide range of courses to build and further expand success in their chosen careers. Students move at their own pace by taking as many courses as their schedules allow.
"Being one of the most affordable AACSB-accredited programs in the U.S. is an important reason why many students decide to enroll in our program." Dr. Gee said. "Our accreditation, affordability, and strategic location combine to make choosing UW-Parkside's M.B.A. program a sound, logical decision."
