The event includes a program overview presentation and Q&A session, followed by lunch with current Executive MBA students, and a special class sit-in with Professor Angelo Camillo's Strategy in Practice class. Information sessions are open to the public and designed for interested professionals to meet with administrators, faculty, alumni, and current students for a discussion of the program, outline of courses, and application counseling and support.  

 

"These sessions are designed to help interested students visualize themselves in the program, with emphasis on the value and convenience of a postgraduate business degree from SSU. We encourage all interested professionals to join and ask questions of students and faculty, to learn first-hand why the Executive MBA program is a life-changing experience that provides the right return on investment for our students and their families," John Stayton, Executive Director of Graduate and Executive Programs said.

The Strategy in Practice course is structured to allow students to identify and evaluate decisions that determine the long-range future of a business or non-profit organization.

He teaches courses in Strategy, Global Enterprise Management, Business Ethics, Organizational Behavior, and special topics in Hospitality Entrepreneurship and Business Development.
