Augustana University, Georgia has announced the launch of its full-time on-campus MBA programme for international students. The MBA programme is aimed to advance social impact by creating ethical business leaders prepared to serve their communities in a diverse world. The announcement was made in New Delhi recently.
The university will also offer the wider student community a shared space for civic life as an integral aspect of a true liberal arts college and community building via new facilities such as the just opened Wagoner Residence Hall featuring flexible study spaces, a commercial kitchen for group cooking, and meditation room, as well as a major renovation to the Morrison Commons Student Union, and a new outdoor classroom.
The MBA curriculum includes an emphasis on leadership, sound decision-making, digital transformation, entrepreneurship and innovation, 21st century finance and sustainability, and the interface between business and society.
Ben Iverson, Director of International Programmes & Enrolment at Augustana University, said “We are eagerly looking forward to welcoming Indian students to this programme and offering them a network with top leaders of growing companies in their industry of interest. Some of these growing companies include, but are not limited to First National Bank, Eide Bailly, Ernst Capital Group, Hegg Companies, and Midco. Augustana is already home to a number of talented students from India and elsewhere in South Asia, so it seemed like a natural place to launch this initiative.”
Augustana University also welcomes Indian students for undergraduate degree programmes across subjects like business, computer sciences, environmental studies, physics, maths, accounting, psychology, multimedia entrepreneurship, art, or music, just to name a few. “Additionally, undergraduate students wishing to eventually pursue an MBA can save a year of study through AU’s innovative 4+1 bachelor plus master’s pathway.
Scholarships with a cumulative worth of up to USD 1 lakh to partially cover the cost of tuition and course fees was also announced by the university official.
Undergraduate applicants must have a minimum SAT score of 500 (English part) or an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent, a GPA of 6.0, and submit an essay to be considered for the scholarship worth USD 15,000 per year. The scholarship could go up to USD 25000 with a band 7.0 in IELTS and an average score of at least 75% in classes 10 and 12.
