Newton Needham Chamber offers MBA scholarship

The Newton Needham Chamber has entered into a partnership with Northeastern University’s  D’Amore-McKim School of Business to offer a $20,000  MBA scholarship to an employee at a qualified Chamber member company annually.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Newton-Needham Chamber to provide this annual scholarship to a Chamber member who joins our world-class Executive MBA program,” said Hugh Courtney, Dean of the D’Amore-McKim School of Business.

“These scholarship recipients will be exposed to cutting-edge business concepts and applications and prepare themselves to drive profitable growth in their organizations and the Newton-Needham communities.”

The D’Amore-McKim Executive MBA degree is a 16-month, cohort-based accelerated program for seasoned professionals that are ready to bring their career to the next level.

The next program starts in January 2015 and meets one day per week — one Friday and three Saturdays per month. To qualify, the applicant must be employed by a Chamber member company.

“The Newton-Needham Chamber is excited to enter this partnership with Northeastern and we’re honored that we were selected to participate in this pilot program,” said Greg Reibman, president of the Newton-Needham Chamber. “As the innovation economy keeps evolving – and businesses here face new challenges — I can’t think of anything more appropriate.”

Admission to the program is based on strong academic ability, a progressive career, and what the candidate will bring to the classroom. The application package includes one essay, two letters of recommendation, official transcripts, resume and interview. The GMAT is not required.

Admission is sometimes granted to highly accomplished individuals who have not earned an undergraduate degree. Tuition is all-inclusive and includes the 60-credit curriculum, all books & materials, travel expenses (air fare, hotel, most meals) for two international trips (Mexico – 7 days and China – 12 days), two domestic residencies (Northeastern’s conference facility – 4 days and Washington, DC – 3 days),  and parking and meals on campus. The rate for the EMBA class which starts in January 2015 is $94,500. The Newton-Needham Chamber of Commerce scholarship is $20,000. Other financial assistance is available.

There will be a webinar explaining the scholarship program on Weds. Nov. 12 at noon. Email info@nnchamber.com for registration details.  To learn more, go here.
