BURLINGTON, ON, June 8 /CNW/ - Dr. Ian Goulter, the Vice-Chancellor and
President of Australia's leading provider of flexible delivery education,
Charles Sturt University (CSU), dramatically increased the University's
commitment to its Ontario campus, in Burlington, with the official launch of a
new MBA program.
"In today's competitive marketplace, employers seek managers with
advanced business acumen," said Dr. Goulter. "Our new MBA program will produce
highly effective leaders equipped with the knowledge and critical thinking
skills to fuel business innovation and profit."
"Our MBA program features engaging, highly interactive technology and
instructional design combined with online forums, high quality print materials
and Ontario-based support and face-to-face tutorials," said Dr. John Hicks,
Dean of the CSU Faculty of Business. "Uniquely student-focused, our approach
to an MBA enables candidates to balance busy schedules at home and work."
"I am delighted to see CSU bring Canadians an affordable, government
approved, Australian-made international MBA program that offers unparalleled
flexibility and excellent value," said Justin Brown, Australian High
Commissioner to Canada. "This builds further on CSU's presence in Canada and
makes a major contribution to further strengthening educational links between
Australia and Canada."
"We are proud CSU calls Burlington their Canadian home, and we
congratulate them on the expansion of their academic programs," said
Burlington's Mayor Cam Jackson.
The new CSU MBA program is centered on 16 challenging courses designed to
build superior business management knowledge and foster critical thinking
skills and innovation. The program can be completed in two years. The program
has a respected 20 year record of innovation and success, and attracts
students from around the world.
In addition to its existing Bachelor of Primary Education Studies program
in Burlington and the new MBA offering, the Ontario Minister of Training,
Colleges and Universities also recently approved two other new CSU programs.
These are the:
- Master of International Education (School Leadership)
- Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies
