Sponsorship Opportunities and Benefits
Corporate Sponsorship is used strategically in organizations as a development tool, to reward a high-potential employee, as a form of compensation, for succession planning, etc. A
variety of reimbursement options are available to facilitate sponsorship. Sponsorship in the form of financial support (tuition reimbursement) is valued at any level.
"Time" sponsorship by employers is required due to the time commitment involved.
Good candidates for the Executive MBA program are individuals who are self-motivated and have the temperament to handle the demands of work, school and home and the willingness to
make a two-year commitment.
Applicants need a minimum of five years relevant work experience and a four-year undergraduate degree. Previous academic training in business is not required for admission. We
encourage potential candidates to talk with alumni and current students. We also strongly encourage students to visit a class, to get a "feel" for the environment and
