Experienced professionals interested in an ethics-based MBA program with a global perspective are encouraged to apply to George Fox University’s Part-Time MBA program in Portland by the application deadline of Aug. 1. Applications after this date may be accepted on a space-available basis.
The 26-month, 42-credit-hour program, offered at the university’s Portland Center near Tigard, begins new cohorts in September. Classes meet one evening per week from 6 to 10 p.m., plus one Saturday per month. The curriculum includes an optional weeklong international study trip and a community consulting project.
More information and enrollment details are available at mba.georgefox.edu or by attending one of the program’s scheduled information events. Information meetings are set for Wednesday, July 13, and Tuesday, July 26, between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. both nights. The sessions take place at the university’s Portland Center near Tigard, located at 12753 S.W. 68th Ave., #195, in Portland.
The program is designed for working professionals seeking to become more effective managers and leaders. In addition to the basics of business, the George Fox Part-Time MBA emphasizes leadership, interpersonal communication, ethics, and social responsibility. Class discussions and readings are balanced with projects and case studies to demonstrate how theory is applied in the real world.
The curriculum also allows for the opportunity to study aboard. In May, a group of 15 students, two faculty members and six guests traveled to Beijing, China, to represent the university’s School of Business as part of an international residency class that annually gives participants the opportunity to get a business education outside the classroom.
Since the program’s inception in 2004, nearly 200 George Fox business graduate students have made the weeklong trips to locales including Brazil (2004-06), Shanghai, China (2007-09) and Beijing and Tianjin, China (2010-11).
