SOQUEL, Calif., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Business Architecture Guild is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Brian Cameron as Special Academic Advisor. Dr. Cameron, Associate Dean for Professional Graduate Programs at the Penn State Smeal College of Business, will advise the Guild on its academic program strategy. As business architecture continues to expand across business communities, the need to incorporate the discipline into MBA and other academic programs has grown in priority. In his new role, Dr. Cameron will offer the Guild insights into how best to disseminate business architecture across academic environments.
In conjunction with the Guild's academic program, the Guild is pleased to recognize Penn State's online Graduate Certificate in Business Architecture. Individuals earning the Graduate Certificate will be better equipped to help organizations execute business strategy and align tactical resources and initiatives with strategic objectives. Certificate holders become a critical strategic resource, helping deliver enhanced effectiveness and improved competitive position.
As a key aspect of this relationship, the Guild will provide resources to support the Graduate Certificate program and conversely gain insights into how to foster recognition of business architecture within the academic community. According to William Ulrich, Guild President and Cofounder, "Expanding business architecture's footprint into academia is the next logical step in the evolution of the discipline."
Dr. Cameron added, "I'm excited to be working with the Business Architecture Guild and believe that many synergies will evolve over time that will benefit the profession. The Penn State online Graduate Certificate in Business Architecture is designed to be a launch point to three online master's programs – the Enterprise Architecture and Business Transformation master's program, the Online MBA program, and the Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship program. This structure provides students with many options depending on their career objectives. Students can apply the credits earned in the graduate certificate toward any of these master's programs."
