Since its inception in January, the King Graduate School of Business at Monroe College has boasted of a “real MBA for real people.” As the King Graduate School nears completion of its first two semesters, this concept has become real life.
“We’re preparing future leaders to succeed in a competitive, complex world of business,” said King Graduate School Dean Lorraine Gerstner, Ph.D. “We have the students do case studies and simulations of real world situations and we bring in guests who can give them first-hand accounts of success in the new world of business.”
The business leaders who have already guest lectured at the King Graduate School include Lloyd A. Williams, President/CEO Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce; Dr. Dominic lvatore, Fordham University Professor of Economics and Business; Carole Jones, Advertising Consultant for the TriState Media Group; and David Moriarty of Deutsche Bank. “This method of teaching is excellent,” said King Graduate School student Cecil Wright. “Meeting people who are in the business world and analyzing actual corporations and business deals is significantly more valuable than reading about them in a book. When I finish, I’ll be that much more capable of being successful.”
