Recently, Globe University-Minneapolis hosted a graduate program open house, which helped prospective students familiarize themselves with Globe University’s programs, the faculty as well as the many other offerings. If you missed the last one, there will be one on Thursday, July 10 from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m.
During the open house, several participants asked: “What is the difference between a ‘professional’ graduate program and a ‘traditional’ one?”
“A professional program is focused on best industry practices. The Globe University master’s and doctoral degrees are driven by project-based applications for management and business practitioners,” Dr. Robert Kramarczuk, graduate program leader, told visitors. “Our MBA, MSM and DBA program faculty use strategies that enable managers and business people to immediately apply newly acquired classroom knowledge and skills in the workplace. This approach adds value to their current position while reinforcing the return on their educational investment.”
Other distinctions of our advanced professional degrees include an emphasis on applied business research in which participants focus on developing business models and management solutions; viable budgets and financial statements; and options to select an industry specific emphasis such as health care management, finance, information technology, marketing and human resources.
Adding to the distinction is our downtown location, which fosters professional networking. The Minneapolis campus is situated in the business and financial district of the local metropolitan area, referred to as the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul.
The Twin Cities has one of the largest concentrations of public and private corporations in the nation. This area is home to 19 Fortune 500 headquarters including U.S. Bancorp, Ameriprise Financial, Thrivent Financial, Target, Supervalu, Land O’ Lakes and Medtronic; significant private company central locations including Cargill, Wells Fargo, Delta and Boston Scientific; has the second largest economy in the Midwest; and is the second largest medical device manufacturer center in North America.
We invite you to explore opportunities to advance your business acumen at our next open house on Thursday evening, July 10. For more information, call 612-455-3000.
