Hellenic American University Announces Open Enrollment in its International MBA Program in New England
Manchester, NH --Hellenic American University, a New Hampshire university with campuses in Manchester and Athens, Greece, has announced that enrollment is now open for its rolling cohort of its international executive MBA program. Students can enroll and apply for financial aid. The flexible, globally focused MBA program, based in New Hampshire was designed with working professionals in mind. The tuition for the 18-month program is $11,000 (plus $3,000 international business practicum).
“The University is international in outlook, but local in it offerings,” said Dr. Triant Flouris, Hellenic American University Provost. “Our program is very unique because it is an international business program in its very core as it is offered in two different continents from a very diverse and international faculty. Our motto is ‘managers not MBAs,’ as we focus on real life and entrepreneurial skills needed by today’s managers informed by contemporary management theory. The international link allows our students to study business, to study society and social movement, and understand decision making in a different context and in a different environment.”
An essential component included in the program is two weeks spent studying in Athens as part of an international business practicum, which combines classroom instruction and experiential learning activities. As part of the curriculum, students also work together on a project commissioned by an international company on a global management project.
Dr. John Slater, Associate Professor and Director of Hellenic American University’s NH campus, noted that the trip to Greece is just as much about the academics as it is the experience and cultivating international relationships. It allows students to learn more about the cultural and social aspects of global business models. In addition, it is not uncommon for students in NH to take an online class from an instructor based in Greece, but taught in English. This gives students the opportunity to learn from and connect with an international professor.
Established in New Hampshire in 2004 as an institute of higher education, the University has an international reach with its campus in Greece – yet a local focus on small classes, mentoring and relationships.
The MBA program saw its first American graduate in June 2015. It is a ground breaking international executive MBA program in Manchester. The University is expanding and offering new degrees, including a new a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics with a TESOL specialization that gives students the opportunity to do their practicum in Greece, if they choose.
MBA program enrollment is based on a rolling cohort schedule. They are currently accepting applications for winter/spring 2017. For more information, visit http://www.hauniv.edu/.
