When seeking out the right school, potential MBA candidates look for that unique feature that makes an excellent academic reputation come alive. WPI’s School of Business hopes its new immersion experiences for potential graduate business students highlight the school’s distinctive academic program and show how “theory and practice” gives students creative value and an advantage in the business world.
The series kicks off with racing-themed events at F1 Boston, a high-performance kart-racing venue in Braintree, on May 30 and June 13. Other events this summer include a program at Old Sturbridge Village on June 20 and one at the Norman Rockwell Museum on July 11.
“This has not been done before,” says James Garvin, associate director in the School of Business. “It’s fairly innovative. These events are in line with who we are as a community.”
The tie-ins for each event were chosen carefully to reflect WPI’s connections with art, science, and industry, says Garvin, and to show potential students why WPI’s School of Business offers both solid academics and valuable insight.
