RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — The University of California, Riverside School of Business Administration has signed reduced tuition agreements with several private companies and government agencies for three professional degree programs. The agreements pertain to the Flex MBA, Master of Professional Accountancy and Master of Finance graduate business programs.

In the past two months, the School of Business Administration has signed agreements with the county of Riverside, Eastern Municipal Water District, California Steel Industries in Fontana, K&N Engineering in Riverside and the city of Riverside.

Several more agreements are in the works and the school is looking to sign additional ones with other companies and government agencies in Inland Southern California.

“We are Inland Southern California’s leading business school and we want to draw the top prospective students from the region to our programs,” said Yunzeng Wang, dean of the School of Business Administration.

The Flex MBA allows students to tailor the schedule to their needs and complete the program in as little at 20 months or longer. The master of finance degree is for full- or part-time students and concentrates specifically on finance. The master of professional accountancy provides future accountants a fifth year of college coursework, which is now required by California and most other states.

The agreements serve as a key workforce development tool for Inland Southern California, said Andrea Palacio, associate director of graduate programs at the School of Business Administration.

“Leading companies and public agencies in the region want to retain their talent and help provide the training so those employees can work their way up the ranks,” Palacio said. “These agreements help to do that.”

Companies and government agencies interested in finding out more about the agreements can contact Andrea Palacio, the associate director of graduate programs at the School of Business Administration, at 951-827-2915 or andrea.palacio@ucr.edu.

Established in 1972, the UC Riverside School of Business Administration, home of the A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management, is the first professional school of its kind in the region, and the only one at a research-based institution. Leveraging its location at the nexus of commerce, the UCR business school seeks to develop world-class leaders and scholars who are as diverse as the challenges they face and the enterprises they grow.
