MBA Workshop Focuses on Student Projects of First Graduating Class

MBA Class of 2015

MBA Class of 2015

The most recent workshop presented by Antioch University Santa Barbara’s Master in Business Administration (MBA) program focused on the student projects of the first graduating class.

Entitled “Antioch’s Got Talent: Business Ideas on Doing Well and Doing Good,” the workshop on Friday, December 4 focused on members of the graduating class of 2015 delivering a 6 to 8 minute “pitch” of the business idea they have hatched and refined over the course of their MBA studies. In keeping with the “not your average MBA” concept, these ideas run the gamut – and bring together passion, life experience, and the tools they have learned over the past 16 months.

A feedback panel included members of the MBA Advisory Board and was moderated by Ann Hutchins, adjunct faculty in the MBA program.
