DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire's Whittemore School of Business and Economics hosts its Executive Master of Business Administration Hooding Ceremony Saturday, June 24, at 1:30 p.m. in Dimond Library's Reading Room (Room 510).
UNH's Executive MBA Program, the oldest of its kind in New England, is an accelerated program of study, offering students the opportunity to attend full-time on alternate weekends for 19 months. Most of those who enroll are non-traditional students with about 15 years of business experience; the weekend class schedule allows them to continue their present employment.
Twenty-three students will receive an Executive MBA degree at the June 24 ceremony. The speaker will be Eric Herr of Bristol, retired chief financial officer of Autodesk, Inc., of San Rafael, Calif., the world's fourth-largest PC software company. Herr also held top management positions at Sun Microsystems and McGraw-Hill Publications, and served as an economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisers in 1974-75.
