June 22, 2012 - PRLog -- Convenience – or lack of – can be either a major motivation or deterrent for busy professionals wanting to burnish their academic credentials with a higher academic degree.  And while there are no doubt many residents and workers in Flushing, Queens with advanced degrees, there is no easily accessible program for  individuals wanting to pursue a Master’s in Business Administration.  All that will change in September when Monroe College’s King Graduate School (http://www.monroecollege.edu/king) ) begins offering a series of credit-bearing lectures as an introductory to its MBA degree program at a central, downtown Flushing location easily accessible from the #7 subway line and Grand Central Station.
   A free, no-obligation, general information session about the overall MBA program and its planned extension course in Flushing will be held at the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel, 13520 39th Ave, on Tuesday, June 26th, from 6:00 – 7:30 PM.  Qualified students will be invited to apply for either part-time or full-time admission, the latter being generally three courses per semester. Monroe’s three-semester academic calendar allows for its MBA degree requirements to be completed in approximately 15-months.  
   Besides the added choice of a new location for studying at Monroe in September, M.B.A. candidates will also be offered three new concentrations in Marketing, Community Development, and Entrepreneurship. The existing MBA minors are in General Business, Finance, Information Technology and Healthcare.
   “Admission to Monroe’s MBA program is selective in order to maintain the College’s reputation and culture of offering small classroom sizes and personal one-on-one service,” explained Dr. Michael J. Marinaccio, dean, M.B.A. program.  “Another thing that distinguishes Monroe is that we always try to accommodate the needs and schedules of students, as much as possible, in order to assure their success. Assigning a professor to teach this introductory M.B.A. course in Flushing is a perfect example of this.”
   In order to get the pulse of the community and the needs of not just potential students but of local companies who recruit students with the MBA credential, Monroe has formed a nine-member Advisory Board headed up by Evan Jerome, vice president of admissions. For the past year, Jerome has been spearheading Monroe’s outreach program in Flushing and surrounding communities.
   “Monroe’s tagline of offering ‘real education for a real world’ really appeals to me,” said Dian Yu, director of the Flushing BID and a member of the Advisory Board.  “Flushing is a community made up largely of new immigrants and first generation Americans from China and Korea, many of whom are young urban professionals.  The arrival of Monroe College in Flushing will be very appealing to their desire to succeed and their penchant for hard work.”
   Other members of the Advisory Board are Marilyn Bitterman, Community Board member, John Choe, founder and director of One Flushing, a community economic development center that serves the needs of small business owners and local residents, Anthony Leung, senior associate, Asset Management, at Ernst & Young and Monroe College alumnus, Michael Wang, director of the  Chinese-American Planning Council’s Nan Shan Senior Citizens Center, Chester Pang, an officer with IFG Trade, Jennifer Tung, a member of the Board of Directors of the Chinese-American Academic & Professional Society, and Henry Bergman, a local real estate professional.
   For more information about the information session, contact Ms. Singee Lam, director of Asian student recruitment for Monroe, 914-632-5400.
