Dal Invites MBA Students "Straight to the Juicy"
In September 2008, Dalhousie University announced "the first corporate residency MBA in Canada," to launch in 2009. The program is open to recent BA and BSc grads, with no work experience required, although in addition to academic criteria, applicants will need to pass an admissions interview much like an employment interview. The program will accommodate 50 students, who will enjoy lengthy, 8-month paid internships with North America's top employers, says the school, at pro-rated management-level salaries.
Dal has established a microsite, www.dalmba.ca, to promote the new degrees, and is launching print advertising to emphasize the accelerated pathway to a career -- "no waiting" "straight to the juicy," "gets you what you want, faster," and "where self-starters start."
