Arts.Advocacy+Wellness: "Liberation through Education - Wake Forrest University FREE MA/MBA Program"

Education is an essential component of liberating ourselves from our personal mental purgatory. Last year, I returned to Grad School at New York University's Gallatin School for Individualized Study. In pursuit of the M.A., I must say that over the past 3 semesters I have learned so much about how the world operates and how I function as living being. This has been one of the most monumental moments in my life. Pursing an M.A. can be a bit of a challenge due to the heavy reading loads of theory, however, once you begin to break-through the theory and understand its application to your specific concentration and the worldly menatility in the function of power and control, you will begin to understand the strength and importance of education.

I often speak on m
oments being featured in major Media publications as being monumental, and now it is my duty to place the importance of education on this platform because I have been changed. I'm better informed and I have more options in this life...and I'm not just talking about financial options. It's the mentality of freedom!

Today, I sh
are with you an opportunity to educate yourself for Liberation. I received an email in my inbox a few days ago from a friend and I had to share with The FUTURE. There's a unique MA/MBA program being offered at Wake Forest University. AND its FREE!!! FUTURE friends and allies I invite you to take a look into this opportunity and pass the information along to your family, friends, and network.

If you find this information isn't for you, I invite you to continue your search in liberating yourself.


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." -Joyce Norfleet
