Full-Time MBA Students on Accelerated Path
A call went out for high achievers and future leaders from around the globe to enroll in the one-year Full-Time MBA program at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management.
It was answered.
Twenty-one professionals began the Bloch Intensive Full-Time MBA program on Aug. 3, and received full-tuition scholarships from the Marion and Henry Bloch Family Foundation. The cost per student is approximately $55,000.
Ten women and 11 men are enrolled in the new program. The goal for the program is to eventually enroll 40 to 50 students per year as it becomes better known.
If you search the dictionary for go-getter, you’ll see the definition “a person who works very hard and who wants very much to succeed.” You may also see a picture of Dynasti Hunt (EMBA ’13).
Hunt describes herself as a strategic thought partner who believes in finding innovative solutions to fit the needs of all employees, while maintaining a focus on the mission, vision and values of an organization. She has applied this philosophy throughout each step of her career.
Three new tenure-track professors and six instructors join Bloch for the fall 2015. Below is a short introduction to the new faculty members and instructors.
Opportunity to Transition from Boot Camp to E-Scholars
Sixteen veterans stepped up for a three-day business boot camp at the Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation to discuss potential ventures, some of which are already in the works.
The boot camp, Vets2Ventures, was held at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Bloch Executive Hall to provide exposure to an entrepreneurial environment for transitioning veterans. Full scholarships were awarded to each veteran accepted into the program, supported by the Regnier Institute and private sponsors.
