Applications are now being accepted for the incoming class of Northwood University’s Aftermarket Executive MBA program, the world’s only MBA degree opportunity tailored specifically to the interests of professionals within the global automotive and commercial-vehicle aftermarket industries. Led by faculty of the University’s acclaimed DeVos Graduate School of Management, the program enrolled its first class earlier this year.
“By any measure, our Aftermarket MBA program has been a significant success, both for the industry and the university,” said Dr. Timothy Nash, vice president of strategic and corporate alliances for Northwood University. “But the best measure is feedback from current participants, who tell us they are energized and challenged by their studies and the opportunity to work with their peers.”
The incoming class will begin study January 31, 2010, during the first of five weeklong classroom sessions on the Northwood University campus in Midland, Mich. The 30-month program blends these on-campus sessions with directed, Web-based instruction to accommodate the career and personal demands of participants.
A key element of the Aftermarket Executive MBA program is a “capstone” project that must demonstrate a minimum business EBIT (earnings before interests and taxes) benefit of US$75,000. Similar student projects have resulted in an average of more than US$450,000 in cost savings or revenue increases to participants’ organizations, representing a more then tenfold payback of the program cost.
