Meredith’s AACSB-accredited School of Business is launching three new options in 2014 that will make its programs even stronger.
MBA Concentration in Health Informatics
Starting in fall 2014, the Meredith MBA will include an option to earn a concentration in health informatics. Students coming out of the MBA program with a health informatics focus will understand the business of health operations, and data collection and organization. Through a partnership with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, students will be able to earn an MBA with a graduate certificate in health informatics.
The concentration option is being offered in response to the demands of the workforce.
“When we talked to employers in the industry it seemed like there was a high demand for people who knew the health industry and who can understand how to collect and use data to make informed decisions,” said Dean of the School of Business Denise Rotondo.
MBA Program Early Entry Option
Traditional applicants to Meredith’s MBA Program are required to have at least two years of work experience. Now, a select group of recent graduates without that experience may still apply to a Meredith MBA through the Early Career Entry option.
Early Career Entry is a selective process and limited spaces are available. A strong undergraduate GPA, superior entrance exam scores, and at least one internship or comparable corporate experience are required. These students will gain extensive professional development through active classroom interactions, team-based projects, and problem solving.
Broyhill Business Fellows
The Broyhill Business Fellows Program, which begins in fall 2014, will prepare students for top internships and job placements through specially designed leadership and professional-development activities. Accounting, business administration, or economics majors who have completed 12 hours of study in business at Meredith are eligible to apply for the Broyhill program.
Students selected for the program will participate in unique leadership seminars, make corporate visits, and interact with accomplished business leaders. Leader-shadowing experiences and one-on-one career coaching bookend the program, providing flexibility to allow each student achieve her unique career goals. Special scholarships for study abroad and to support professional development are also available.
