Building on the continued success and creativity of the College of Business Administration’s MBA program, Rider University began an innovative partnership with Bank of America to make a Rider MBA more accessible and attainable for Bank of America employees.
"The College of Business Administration is focused on working with the corporate community to meet organizational learning needs. The program with Bank of America supports that objective and at the same time allows us to partner with a very well-respected organization to further develop the knowledge and skills of their talented workforce,” said Dr. Steven Lorenzet, dean of the College of Business Administration.
The program, modeled after a similar partnership with Waste Management that was announced in December 2012, is a unique way to offer employees the benefits of a convenient, on-site Rider education, while affording the University access to new students working to reach their academic goals.
Judging by the initial information sessions held at Bank of America and the enrollment this fall, the program looks to be a success, according to John Farrell, assistant dean of the College of Business Administration.
"Bank of America employees have embraced this opportunity," Farrell said. "We had 24 employees enrolled in the fall, and just as many registered for the spring semester."
