First global MBA class graduates
Among the 284 new graduates December 11 were a dozen representing the first cohort of the global MBA program.
The first cohort of students began the 16-month, 41-unit program in August 2009 at the North Fresno Center. The program consists of weekly evening classes and online component. In all, three cohorts are now going in Visalia and Bakersfield as well as North Fresno.
One feature that makes the program truly global is that students experience business as a worldwide activity. Not only do faculty have international experience in Europe and Asia, travel is included in the tuition. The graduating cohort went to China, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.
