MBA Director’s Message
Welcome to the 2015 - 2016 academic year. I hope that you had an enjoyable summer. I am excited to announce the launch of two new graduate programs this year. The Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program prepares students for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP) exams, the premier certifications in the finance field. The Certificate of Graduate Study in Accounting (COGS) is designed to allow students to expand their knowledge in specialized accounting subjects as well as obtain additional courses needed to reach the 150 credit requirement to be licensed as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). As always, careful course planning is an essential part of pursuing your MBA. Please be sure to schedule time to meet with me. I am located in Bunce Hall, room 206. The MBA office can be contacted via email at [email protected]
We look forward to working with you over the coming academic year. Sincerely,
James Jordan, MBA Director, MBA Program Rohrer College of Business Volume 28, Issue 1
RCB Welcomes New MBA Students
Dr. Pontes, along with MBA alumna Stephanie Brigandi and MBA student Matthew Slevenski welcome new MBA students, Stephen James and Jaimelynn Kisthardt at the Rowan MBA networking event. During the first week of classes, MBA alumni, current students, faculty, and staff welcomed new MBA students at the Courtyard Marriott on Rowan Boulevard. MBA Director, Jim Jordan expresses the importance of having the networking event at the start of each year: “The purpose of the event is to extend a warm welcome to our newest students and to provide an opportunity for students to build bridges with faculty and returning alumni.” New student, Jaime Kisthardt, appreciated the event: “The MBA Networking Event provided me with an opportunity to engage with other MBA students and faculty as well as successful alumni of the MBA program. It was extremely valuable to be able to interact with people involved with the MBA program and helped extend my personal and professional network. The MBA Networking Event was very insightful and made me feel more connected to the college as a whole and valued as a student.” Thank you to everyone who attended!
