FSU MBA Program Finalist for Innovator Award
Fayetteville State University’s (FSU) Master of Business of Administration (MBA) has been named one of five finalists for the 2012 Innovator Awards presented by the MBA Roundtable. The MBA Roundtable, of which FSU is a member, is a global association of business schools working together to inform and inspire MBA curricular and programmatic innovation.
Entries, highlighting a wide variety of curricular and programmatic initiatives, were reviewed by a screening committee comprised of both business school insiders and industry leaders in October. Judges evaluated the entries in four principle categories – concept, execution, outcome, and presentation – to select the finalists. FSU’s MBA program was cited for its Integrated Distance Learning and Online MBA.
Other finalists include Auckland University of Technology, Monterey Institute of International Studies, Rice University, and the University of Buffalo. These schools, along with FSU, will advance to the second round of judging which includes an interview and further evaluation. The winner will be announced and present a concurrent session at the 2013 Leadership Conference, January 23-25 in San Francisco, California.
The purpose of the MBA Roundtable is to improve MBA education and the practice of management by:
- Creating forums to challenge, debate, and shape the future of MBA curricular design;
- Equipping business school faculty and administrators with the knowledge and resources needed to advance MBA curricular and programmatic innovation; and
- Promoting and recognizing MBA curricular achievement, change, and innovation
The MBA Roundtable was first envisioned in 1995 when 12 pioneering business school faculty delivered a concurrent session on MBA curricular innovation to a standing-room-only crowd at a Decision Sciences Institute conference. Since 1995 the organization has grown to 160-plus member business schools who work together to advance MBA curricular and programmatic innovation.
FSU is a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina and the second-oldest public institution of higher education in the state. FSU offers nearly 60 degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. With nearly 6,000 students, Fayetteville State University is among the most diverse institutions in the nation.
