School of Business will offer free, online MBA advising

The SUNY New Paltz School of Business will offer free information sessions this fall to provide students and community members with an overview of the master of business administration degree (MBA) program.

Info sessions will be held on Oct. 23 and Nov. 27, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., with an afternoon option available from 12 – 1 p.m. on Nov. 12.

For the first time, the info sessions will be offered via web conference, allowing anyone with an interest in the program to receive MBA program information and ask questions from the comfort of their own homes.

“These sessions include a little of everything: a full curriculum breakdown of the MBA, info on the admission requirements, help with the application process and a rundown of scholarship and graduate assistantship opportunities,” said Aaron Hines, the School of Business’s Assistant Dean for MBA Programs. “It’s exciting this year to be able to offer this information through the video conference format, and save our prospective students an extra trip to campus.”

There will also be information about the flexible part-time online MBA option, a new offering designed to better accommodate students looking for opportunities to fit professional advancement into their busy lives, and about the new, accelerated one-year option, for full-time students able to dedicate their energies to an immersive class load.

All members of the community are invited to participate in the online MBA info sessions. Those planning to attend are asked to register online at
