FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) will be hosting two upcoming open houses for prospective students of the IPFW Accelerated MBA Program. The popular program is designed for working adults who want to advance in their careers by completing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in only 11 months. Those successfully completing the program that starts this August will receive an MBA in summer 2015.

IPFW’s MBA Program develops skills to help professionals make effective and ethical business decisions in today’s ever-changing global environment. To be considered for the program prospective students must have a bachelor’s degree and three years of professional work experience.

Open Houses for Prospective Accelerated MBA Students
Students interested in the IPFW Accelerated MBA Program should plan to attend one of two upcoming open houses to meet faculty and staff members who can answer questions about the program, as well as meet with potential MBA colleagues. The two open houses are:

  • Wednesday, February 19, 4:30–6 p.m., Steel Dynamics Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center
  • Tuesday, March 11, 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m., Kettler Hall, Room 227 at IPFW. (This is during IPFW’s spring break, so parking will be open.)

Open house registrations can be made online, or by calling IPFW at 260-481-5449.

About the Accelerated MBA Program
The IPFW Accelerated MBA Program is unique in many ways. Classes are small in size and students progress through the program as a cohort or team, providing the foundation for lifelong professional relationships and friendships. Students take only 11 classes, regardless of undergraduate major, and the classes meet Friday evenings and Saturdays to accommodate the students’ work schedules. Unlike most graduate schools, including IPFW’s traditional MBA Program, the Accelerated MBA Program does not require the GMAT entrance exam.

IPFW offers the only MBA Program in northeast Indiana that is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International), the highest level of accreditation that can be obtained. High-quality instruction is provided by full-time faculty members from the IPFW Doermer School of Business as well as from experienced professionals based on their areas of expertise. MBA diplomas from IPFW are granted under the auspices of Indiana University.

The Accelerated MBA Program is an offering of the IPFW Doermer School of Business and is administered by the Division of Continuing Studies. Prospective students should plan to attend one of the upcoming open houses or visit the IPFW website for more information.
