Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) will host an Open House Wednesday, November 9, for prospective students of the IPFW MBA programs. IPFW awards an Indiana University degree and is accredited by AACSB. The two popular programs, the Professional MBA and the MBA+, are accepting applications.

The open house will be held on Wednesday, November 9, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center. A presentation will be given at 5:30 p.m. The open house will enable prospective students to visit with faculty and staff, ask questions and learn more about the programs. Additionally, attendees will have an opportunity to meet and network with other potential MBA colleagues.

The Professional MBA (formerly the Accelerated MBA) is designed for working adults who want to advance in their careers by completing an MBA in less than 12 months. Classes meet online and on Saturdays.

Carolyn Stumph, Ph.D., the new director of IPFW MBA programs, says, "Recent changes in our MBA program include the addition of concentrations in Business Analytics and Finance. This improves students' expertise in turning data into insights, which benefits the business community of northeast Indiana." MBA+ classes meet in the evenings, which allows working professionals to take advantage of the program. Hybrid and online course options are also available.

Interested parties can register through the IPFW website or by calling IPFW at (260) 481-6118. Those with questions about the program may also contact program coordinator James Cashdollar at (260) 481-6118 or cashdolj@ipfw.edu .
