UMPI, Graduate School of Business team to expand opportunities
The University of Maine at Presque Isle has helped develop another opportunity for the business community in northern Maine.
Central Aroostook Chamber of Commerce members and their employees, as well as members of Momentum Aroostook, will receive a 12% tuition discount on MaineMBA courses at the University of Maine Graduate School of Business.
The discount is a defining feature of the Workforce Partners Program, which is available to active members of any Maine chamber of commerce. Participants in the Workforce Partners Program will be able to pay less than $12,000 in tuition to complete the MaineMBA.
“We are so pleased to have the University of Maine Graduate School of Business expanding upon the incentives being made available to the Central Aroostook Chamber of Commerce and Momentum Aroostook and providing graduate-level course offerings to our local business community,” said UMPI President Ray Rice. “It’s collaborations like this that allow the University of Maine System to best serve the workforce development needs of our region.”
Officials with the University of Maine Graduate School of Business visited UMPI last fall for a Business Development Lunch and Learn. J. Michael Weber, dean of the University of Maine Graduate School of Business, shared facts and strategies during his talk titled “Strategic Planning and Workforce Development for Businesses in Aroostook County.” Topics ranged from career-building for young professionals to leadership succession planning in an aging workforce.
