      FW: Free Management Masters program at Wake Forest UniversityThis is the second person who informed me of this opportunity; she is a former student and reliable, so this may be worth checking out for your minority students who are interested in the field.

      Please pass on.


      Wake Forest University has an opportunity for minority students to attend its
      MBA program for FREE, and so far, the response has been very poor. Please, pass
      along this opportunity to your friends, families, and networks to see if there
      is an interest. This is a great school and a tremendous opportunity to attend a
      top graduate school.

      See details below. The contact person information is:

      Message from Derrick S. Boone, Ph.D.:

      Greetings, I wanted to let you know about a great opportunity here at Wake
      Forest where you can get a FREE education and get PAID while you're doing it.
      Our Dean of the Schools of Business is the former CEO of PepsiCo and very
      committed to diversity. He's gone around to his CEO friends, who have agreed to
      donate a bunch of money to pay tuition and fees, provide a stipend, and a job,
      to diverse students. The details are below. The problem is, response to the
      program has been dismal! As a faculty member, I would be embarrassed for him to
      have to tell his CEO friends, "thanks so much for your donation, but
      unfortunately I have to give it back because we couldn't find Any students who
      wanted it." So, I need your help. Please contact me if you, or ANYONE you know
      is interested in the program. I want to help out as many young scholars as I
      can. Don't worry about whether or not you (or they) have taken the GMAT, etc.
      All you need to do at this point is JUST APPLY.

      About the Program: The Master of Art in Management program is designed
      specifically for liberal arts majors only. The MA degree program is a 10 month
      intense study of the basic functional areas of Business. After graduation and
      working for approximately two years, all MA graduates are eligible to apply to
      Wake Forest as part of the MA/MBA joint degree program and get the MBA in one
      year. The new Dean, Steve Reinemund, has created a new scholarship for diverse
      students pursuing the MA degree called the Corporate Fellowship.

      The Corporate Fellowship provides full tuition and a $21,000 stipend to cover
      living expenses. Additionally, each Corporate Fellow will participate in a
      practicum. The practicum has two components, educational and professional
      development. Each student will be assigned a mentor that is a high level
      executive with their sponsor corporation. The mentor will oversee an educational
      project covering 4 of the functional areas of business using their own
      corporation as the subject.

      The student will visit the corporation 3-4 times during the program to present
      his/her results of their research project. Additionally, the "professional
      development" component of the fellowship provides career coaching and leadership
      development for the students.

      The goal for the corporation is to be able to groom and hopefully, hire a top
      candidate from a diverse background for their organization. Of course, there is
      no obligation that the students accept any offer of employment. Still, the
      student benefits, even if they are not ultimately hired by their sponsor
      corporation in that they have the MA degree and the type of experience that will
      make them more marketable.
