Market Focus Drives Graduate Program Growth

Dr. Tom Loper, Associate Provost and Dean of the School of Science and Management, believes that this growth can be directly attributed to the organization’s focus on the evolving needs of employers in the region and their demand for career-focused professionals that can stay on top of their needs.

Dr. Loper will provide webinar participants with a clear understanding of the market dynamics associated with each of the graduate business programs in the School of Science and Management at Bay Path University. Career-enhancing learning is woven throughout each of these exciting new programs.
