On Tuesday, March 6, the Indiana University Northwest School of Business and Economics -- Chicagoland’s Affordable AACSB Business School -- will host an evening open house to introduce area professionals to its Weekend MBA for Professionals program.

The event is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. in Dunes Medical/Professional Building Room 1156, located on the IU Northwest campus at 35th Ave. and Jefferson St. in Gary, just one-half mile south of I-80/94.

The Weekend MBA for Professionals offers a program of study specifically designed to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals. It includes all-day Saturday classes every other Saturday, plus online components, and leads to degree completion in only 18 months.

There is also an evening MBA option in which classes meet two nights per week. That program may be completed in as few as 20 months. Classes for both programs are taught by full-time Ph.D. business faculty who are active in research.

IU Northwest offers the only public business program in Northwest Indiana that is accredited by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), which is the premier business accreditation attained by only five percent of business schools worldwide. In 2010, AACSB reaffirmed the business school’s accreditation for an additional six years.

The weekend and evening programs make this advanced degree accessible for working professionals who must balance their education with other personal and professional obligations.

The IU Northwest School of Business and Economics is proud to offer programs that make an advanced business degree accessible to prospective students regardless of their schedules.
