BOSTON, April 6 /CNW/ - Hult International Business School
(http://hult.edu/), the world's first global business school, announced today
that it is offering its MBA program alumni a unique opportunity to maintain
their business knowledge throughout their careers. Going forward the school
has taken the unprecedented step of giving all of its 4,500 MBA degree holders
the option of returning regularly to join elective classes for free.
Hult graduates can take one MBA elective course per year for the rest of
their career. They will receive a certificate for each elective course
Robin Nurse, Director of Hult's MBA Career Services
(http://hult.edu/mba-program/your-career/services), comments, "In today's fast
moving environment, business school graduates need to continually upgrade
their skills to stay competitive. This is particularly important in an
economic downturn, since many employers carefully evaluate their talent base."
Hult, the first corporate university in the U.S., offers electives at its
campuses in Boston, London, Dubai and Shanghai. Alumni can take advantage of
this global footprint by choosing to participate in free electives at any
Dr. Richard Joseph, Hult's Dean, says, "This offer follows the school's
mission to provide an enduring and relevant business education. Our
international campuses enable graduates to study wherever is most convenient
for them, or in a location they would like to understand in more detail. Many
students already participate in our Shanghai MBA program so they can fully
understand the business opportunities in China."
Hult's one-year MBA already offers the highest return on investment of
any top-ranked MBA program (http://www.hult.edu/about-hult/rankings). This
opportunity for graduates to maintain their business knowledge for free after
graduation further strengthens Hult's position.
Robin Nurse adds, "Typically schools charge around US$2,500 per elective.
So this new program can literally save alumni tens of thousands of dollars
over the course of their career. I know of no other business school which
offers their alumni such a valuable professional and networking opportunity."
Hult International Business School (http://www.hult.edu/) operates
campuses in Boston, London, Dubai and Shanghai. Hult offers a range of
business-focused programs including undergraduate degrees and master's
degrees. Its flagship MBA program received top rankings from both the
Financial Times and the Economist Intelligence Unit.
