Representatives of West Virginia University's College of Business and Economics will visit Bluefield State College's sites in Bluefield, Beckley, and Lewisburg later this month to conduct a series of question/answer sessions about the University's Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program. The program will be offered at the BSC sites, beginning this Fall, thanks to a cooperative agreement between Bluefield State College and WVU.
Dr. Paul Speaker, Director of WVU's MBA Programs will meet with individuals interested in the program April 20 (2 p.m.-4 p.m.) at the Brier Inn in Lewisburg, followed by an evening meeting that day (6 p.m.-8 p.m.) at BSC's Beckley Campus in the Harper Industrial Park. He will conduct a meeting at the Tierney Center, Dickason Hall, on BSC's main campus in Bluefield, April 21 (6 p.m.-8 p.m.)
WVU will connect Bluefield State College and its campuses in Bluefield, Lewisburg, and Beckley to its distance learning network. Students will take their courses simultaneously with other students around the state in a two-way interactive electronic classroom setting, according to Dr. Sydney Stern, Dean of the WVU College of Business and Economics.
BSC President Dr. Robert Moore noted, "The Executive M.B.A. from WVU complements BSC's existing offerings at and below the baccalaureate level, via the College network. By providing residents in southeast West Virginia the opportunity to access a top quality master's level program, this cooperative venture augments Bluefield State College's use of technology to meet our goal of expanding access to higher education throughout the region."
