MBA Courses in Center City Allentown; DeSales Adds MBA Location

by Tom McNamara | Nov 13, 2014

Starting in January 2015, DeSales University will offer classes for its master of business administration (MBA) program at the Wells Fargo Building in Center City Allentown.

“DeSales MBA is very excited to be a part of the re-vitalization of downtown Allentown,” said David Gilfoil, director of the DeSales University MBA program. “Offering select MBA courses at this location will better serve our Allentown-based customers—and their student employees.“

The inaugural class offering will be “Strategic Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Creativity,” a special topics course that satisfies a course requirement in all DeSales MBA concentrations.  Scheduled for Monday evenings from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m., the course will include topical guest speakers from Allentown and Lehigh Valley businesses. A second course will be offered beginning April 6, 2015; also on Monday evenings.

The MBA course offering is in partnership with the Center City Investment Corporation, who is redeveloping the Downtown Allentown area. This redevelopment includes new office space, retail and restaurant space, and the new PPL Center hockey and events arena at Seventh and Hamilton streets.

“Partnering with local city planners, entrepreneurs, and established corporations and institutions will also enable us to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes for each of them and for our MBA students,” said Gilfoil.

Center City MBA courses are open to any student with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, as well as any current DeSales MBA student.

The DeSales University MBA program is offered online and at four locations, including the main campus in Center Valley, as well as the Easton Area and Lansdale campuses. The program is also hosted at Immaculata University, Lehigh Valley Hospital and the Pocono Medical Center.
