Brentwood, N.Y. – When an economic downturn increases competition in the job market, it’s more important than ever to have the best credentials. And when it comes to M.B.A. degrees, the best credential is accreditation by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
The AACSB International-accredited Master of Business Administration program at the Brentwood Campus of Long Island University offers a 25 percent tuition discount, convenient evening classes and professors who are experts in management, marketing and finance. The Brentwood Campus M.B.A. is a division of the M.B.A. program at Long Island University’s C.W. Post Campus, which has been named one of the “best business schools” by The Princeton Review for the past three years.
"It's a well-rounded academic program that’s applicable to any industry and provides students with high-value skills," said George Andreadis, director of Graduate Programs for the C.W. Post College of Management as well as an instructor in the program and a veteran investment manager. "Many of our students say the M.B.A. jump-starts their creativity and leads them to new opportunities or new ways to succeed in their present careers."
"Some students decide they don’t want to work for someone else," Andreadis added. "With the entrepreneurial skills that you develop in the M.B.A. program, you can start your own business."
AACSB International accredits only programs with the best professors, most comprehensive curricula and meaningful interaction between professors and students. "This gives graduates a leg up on the competition," said Andreadis. "Employers know that AACSB International-accredited programs are current, provide relevant knowledge and reflect an understanding of today’s complex business environment."
Students progress through the Brentwood M.B.A. program together as a cohort, which develops teamwork skills and offers excellent opportunities for networking. Most students are already working professionals and many form mutually beneficial relationships with their classmates.
By attending class each Saturday, students can earn nine credits per semester, which qualifies as full-time study. The entire 48-credit degree program can be completed in two years.
Along with the M.B.A., the Brentwood Campus offers graduate programs in education, criminal justice and library and information science and a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. Graduates of Brentwood Campus programs are eligible for the Brentwood Alumni Scholarship, a one-third tuition discount.
