UConn Offers Unparalleled Experiential Learning Initiatives

The University of Connecticut (UConn) successfully integrates classroom learning with practical applications through innovative experiential learning accelerators. These unique practice-based initiatives integrate traditional teaching and classroom experience with high-profile corporate partnering to close the gap between theory and practice. They are what ultimately give UConn M.B.A. graduates the competitive edge -- the highly desirable real-world experience that today's global businesses demand.

UConn's experiential learning initiatives bring together talented M.B.A. students, top business faculty, and front-line industry executives to investigate and develop solutions to real-world, real-time, complex challenges facing business today. This intense educational model significantly benefits all parties involved: it offers a real-world lab for ground-breaking faculty research; it delivers tangible, innovative solutions to current market challenges faced by sponsoring companies; and it provides a dynamic learning environment for students that merges traditional education with practical experience.

UConn's experiential learning initiatives include the $2 Million Student Managed Fund, the SS&C Technologies Financial Accelerator, the Innovation Accelerator, and SCOPE (Sustainable Community Outreach & Public Engagement).

UConn Offers Academic Excellence

Educating leaders for 130 years, the UConn School of Business has been accredited by AACSB International -- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business -- since 1958. This premiere accreditation coupled with various institutional rankings places UConn among the top 3% of business schools worldwide.

As leaders in business education, UConn's world-class M.B.A. professors are critical to the learning process. In addition to teaching, many are actively involved in scholarly research activities or business consulting that enables them to stay current in, and contribute to, their fields of knowledge. When UConn faculty members introduce original research and practical experience into the classroom, students benefit from the intersection of cutting-edge knowledge and practice. This winning combination shortens the learning curve and equips students to immediately add value to hiring companies.

In addition to individual faculty research, the school's extensive network of centers and institutes assists in carrying out UConn's research and education mission, serving as a resource for businesses -- both in the state of Connecticut and worldwide. As coalitions for innovation, UConn's centers bring together cross-disciplinary faculty perspectives and a strong interface between UConn and the business community. M.B.A. students not only benefit from the knowledge and research being developed by the centers and institutes, but also from the opportunities and relationships associated with them.

UConn Offers Exceptional ROI

In today's challenging economic climate, the return on investment for an M.B.A. education is more important than ever. "Forbes" ranks UConn's M.B.A. Program 27th nationally for ROI with a post-M.B.A. salary increase of $45,000.

Tuition and fees for the 2010-11 academic year (two semesters) for the Full-Time M.B.A. program at UConn are a bit over $11,000 for Connecticut residents and $26,000 for nonresidents. Additional costs, including required health insurance, textbooks, mobile computer, laundry, and incidentals, can add up to an estimated $7,000. Fees are subject to change without notice.
