Hiram, Thiel Create Early BA, MBA Assurance Program – Business Journal Daily


HIRAM, Ohio – Hiram College and Thiel College have entered into a new Early Assurance Program that creates a seamless progression of academic coursework from the Bachelor of Arts at Hiram to the MBA at Thiel in Greenville, Pennsylvania.

Qualified undergraduate students at Hiram’s Scarborough School of Business and Communication can apply for and receive conditional admission to Thiel College’s MBA program in their first year. Students admitted to the program will also be guaranteed a Graduate Assistant Scholarship.

“Given the commonalities between a Hiram and Thiel educational experience, this partnership makes perfect sense,” said Andrew White, Principal of the Scarborough School of Business and Communication. “This represents a fantastic opportunity for our students to secure a place in an exceptional MBA program and complete both their bachelor’s and MBA in five years.”

To be eligible for enrollment, students must be in good standing and have a minimum 3.0 overall cumulative GPA and a 3.0 GPA in all Scarborough School of Business and Communication courses upon graduation from Hiram .

Interested students must also complete an application for admission to the program in their freshman year, following a successful interview with Anthony Kos, Professor of Business Administration and Director of the MBA Program at Thiel College. A completed application to the program consists of undergraduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, a professional resume, and a personal statement.

“Both Hiram College and Thiel College have a rich history rooted in the liberal arts,” says Kos. “The MBA partnership between Thiel and Hiram is a collaborative effort that creates a positive synergy for all students with the additional presence of Hiram students in the cohort. Additionally, the inclusion of Hiram faculty instruction in the Thiel MBA program will enrich the experience of all students in the accelerated 11-month program.
