UMaine to offer MBA discount for Maine employers

The University of Maine Graduate School of Business will offer 12% tuition discounts toward the MaineMBA beginning January 2020. 

The Workforce Partners Program, which is available to active members of any Maine chamber of commerce, improves access and affordability toward completion of the MaineMBA. 

According to recent studies, over the past year, Maine had more than 2,000 open positions requiring graduate-level education. By leveraging the resources of the Graduate School of Business and chambers around the state, this program will equip Maine’s current workforce with the knowledge and skills necessary to fill these critical roles. 

“This program is even more incentive for Maine employees to take advantage of the opportunities of the highly ranked MaineMBA,” says Michael Weber, dean of the Graduate School of Business.

Since 1964, UMaine’s MBA has cultivated today’s leaders. Following a recent merger with the University of Southern Maine graduate business program, the newly redesigned MaineMBA is a degree for the future. In addition to providing a breadth of knowledge in areas including management psychology, marketing strategy, and accounting principles, the MaineMBA offers unique concentrations for students who want a tailored educational experience. Concentrations in business analytics, finance, health care management, and accounting are just a few of the tracks that students can explore.

Participants in the Workforce Partners Program will pay less than $12,000 in tuition to complete the MaineMBA.

“Thanks to partners like the University of Maine System, our members can advance themselves to the MBA level within their business field of expertise and save on tuition,” says LaNiece Sirois, president of the Aroostook County Chamber of Commerce. “It is exciting to celebrate the ability to offer an added level of benefits to our members. The value of an investment in their chamber just increased.”
