A professional opportunity for tough times

15 Mar

If you’re a Kellstadt graduate and have been planning to return to school, you’re in luck. DePaul’s highly-ranked B-school announced Thursday that it is reducing per-course tuition for its alumni by nearly 25 percent.

Reason? Kellstadt administrators say that they are creating an opportunity for DePaul MBA graduates to become more competitive in the workplace and tough job market.

You aren’t a Kellstadt alumnus/a? No problem. They must have had you in mind, too. The press release announcing the reduced tuition also says that the school will offer 15-week MBA Primer certificate courses on its downtown and Rolling Meadows campuses beginning in May.  Sort of like the sampler plate restaurants offer for those unfamiliar with their menu. If you like it, you can go full course.

Lori Chavez, 37, of Chicago, who earned a DePaul MBA in marketing management and research analysis in 2008 is taking Kellstadt up on its offer. She was laid off in November and will use Kellstadt’s alumni scholarship to pursue a second master’s degree in finance.

What are your thoughts on this offer? Let us know. Right here. Right now! For the 411 on what Kellstadt calls its own stimulus package, go here.
