Technology MBA To Be Offered At NJIT In Fall

NEWARK, May 1- "The School of Management at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) continues in its bid to prepare executives to face the challenges of today's highly-technological business environment with its technology-intensive executive master of business administration degree," says program director Pikay Richardson. The degree program starts this fall at NJIT's Newark campus.

"Our executive MBA program is an 18-month program that offers mid-career managers and executives the opportunity to gain world-class management education, while allowing them to continue with their jobs," says Richardson.

Apart from requiring two, one-week residential blocks, the part-time program asks students to meet on Fridays and Saturdays, twice a month. The first residential block introduces everyone in the group. The second residential block, which occurs about 10 months later, is devoted to a foreign study tour of carefully selected world-class companies overseas. The tour, which is part of the global competitiveness course, enhances delegates' understanding of cross-cultural issues in business and improves their international competencies.

"The curriculum keeps students ahead of the revolution in today's technology-driven global economy, by emphasizing the use of information systems and technology to develop and sustain competitive advantage in the market place," says Richardson.
