PHOENIX — Arizona State University will be offering full scholarships to full-time students who enroll in the M.B.A. program at the W.P. Carey School of Business, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The program, called Forward Focus, will provide up to 120 scholarships to full-time, on-campus students who are pursuing a Master’s degree in business administration starting next fall.
Forward Focus will aim to bring a more diverse population of students to the highly-accredited business program, W.P. Carey Dean Amy Hillman said.
In-state students currently pay $54,000 a year to enroll in the program, a number that jumps up to $87,000 for out-of-state students and $90,000 for international students.
Hillman said the program will aim to enroll students who are looking to pursue a business degree in non-traditional business markets, such as nonprofit organizations.
The program will be funded by a $50 million endowment from William Polk Carey, the school’s namesake.
In addition to the scholarships, the program will offer four new courses and learning labs to merge business practices with non-traditional markets, such as healthcare.
This past fall, 86 students were enrolled in the full-time M.B.A. program, according to the article.
