Growth in CoBE Degree Offerings

We are now fully into the regular semester routine – working, studying, writing, presenting and even starting to plan for spring semester classes.

Burrows, Steve 100x125

The COBE Leaders’ Ways and Wisdom: Distinguished Speaker Series  brings Stephen Burrows, former CEO of Anheuser Busch International.  He will present “Lessons Learned in Global Business Management” at 4:30pm, October 7 in Timmerman Auditorium.

From the graduate programs area…

The new Doctorate in Business Administration is in the final stages of approval.  A team from the Higher Learning Commission visited campus on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, to review the program.  We anticipate final approval over the next couple  of months.
A new Masters degree in Applied Economics is headed to the UW System Board of Regents in mid-October.  If approved this program will start along with the DBA in Fall 2014.
In the meantime, our “new and improved” MBA curriculum officially began this semester with the addition of project management emphasis and a “build-your-own” customized emphasis.
And finally…
We also welcomed Patrick Snyder, Executive Director of United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) to Hyland Hall.  USASBE has moved their national headquarters to UW-Whitewater.
