Engagement and Leadership with Part-time MBA Students

Friday | June 26 | 2015 | 1:00 pm - 2:15 PM
Governor's Square 17

As part-time graduate programs become an increasingly larger part of our schools' portfolios, more time and resources are being spent on this population of working professionals. This session will address different aspects of the part-time student experience – from onboarding to academic and career advising to placement. We will address those key questions around setting and managing expectations, engaging students in leadership experiences and best practices for academic and career advising. We invite you to participate in this interactive discussion about the unique requirements of this student population as well as the myriad opportunities and challenges.
