The Frank G. Zarb School of Business launched the first Online M.B.A. Program on Long Island with a focus in strategic business management. The program is taught by full-time faculty members and has a global and industry focus with residency requirements that include interaction with New York City industry leaders and global corporations. Eighteen highly qualified students from across the United States began the program in late August when they gathered in New York for their first residency.
“As part of the Zarb focus on students, we are continually building and introducing new programs and courses that allow our students to stay on the cutting edge of business. Many of our graduate students are working professionals who rely heavily on a flexible program ─ a program that allows them to continue their studies while also continuing their professional careers,” said Zarb School of Business Dean Patrick Socci. “This Online MBA Program is tailored for those students who are trying to advance their education and career without leaving their current location and position.”
The small class sizes of the Online M.B.A. program provide a seamless interaction between faculty members and students and the flexibility of the program exists in its cohort program option, which allows for a completion of the degree within two years.
“We have an exciting global strategic business management focus for the program and the online components are supplemented with two one-week residencies at Hofstra’s New York location, providing opportunities to network with local industry leaders and our alumni base. A one-week foreign trip consisting of multiple business visits is also an integral part of this program and will provide a strong foundation to the global dimension of the program,” said Executive Director of the Online M.B.A. Program and Associate Professor of Management, Entrepreneurship and General Business Dr. Kaushik Sengupta. “We believe that these components add significant value to the program and will provide the necessary knowledge and exposure to the students in this era of global business, allowing them to succeed in their professional careers.”
