FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne’s (IPFW’s) Doermer School of Business and Division of Continuing Studies are sponsoring a series of open house events to promote the Accelerated MBA program. Prospective students often wonder if an MBA will help them get ahead in their careers and if they can handle an accelerated program. Those questions and more can be answered at each open house by someone who is either in the program right now, or has graduated from it.

In response to student feedback, all classes for the Accelerated MBA program will be on Friday evenings and Saturdays beginning with the class of 2012–13. In the past, the program began with an intensive two-week course that was taught every evening; now that course will be incorporated into the first component of the program.

Anyone interested in pursuing an MBA is invited to attend any of the following open houses:

  • Tuesday, March 6, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the IPFW campus, in Kettler Hall, Room 227
  • Tuesday, March 13, 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Dupont Library
  • Tuesday, March 20, 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Georgetown Library
  • Wednesday, April 18, 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the IPFW Warsaw Center.

IPFW’s accelerated MBA program offers a convenient schedule with classes meeting Friday evenings and Saturdays. No GMAT is required and successful applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and two years of relevant work experience or familiarity with the basics in accounting, finance, economics, ethics, and the regulatory environment. Graduates earn an internationally recognized degree at the only university in northeast Indiana accredited by AACSB-International.
