WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Nov. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Touro University Worldwide online MBA program is almost a year old and already draws rave reviews from students.


According to Dr. Gregory Zerovnik, Director of Business Programs at Touro University Worldwide, "Our scholar-practitioner model, providing access to quality courses that address real business and professional situations is clearly hitting the mark with our TUW mid-career students."

One example is current MBA student Corine Ganem, an administrative assistant at a college in France. Ganem recently completed an MBA Professional Communications course and said:

"The Professional Communications course in the MBA program has helped me to write much better for business purposes.  I have learned to keep it short and go right to the point in my emails.  People understand what I want from my start and give me greater feedback.

Additionally, "My skills in social media have also improved. Now, I am even able to write a blog! Thanks to the materials and the lively, constructive interaction with fellow students and my professor, I understand all of the do's and don'ts in a practical way. From the start, I have been able to apply what I have learned in my daily life. The course has really made a difference," Ganem said.

Touro University Worldwide is a division of the Touro College and University System. TUW began the MBA program by offering classes in late 2010. The MBA degree program offers five concentrations: Finance, Marketing, Strategy, Management, and Media & Communications. The program already has over thirty students enrolled.

TUW C.E.O. and Senior Provost, Dr. Bernard Luskin, notes that "TUW is a division of Touro University Los Angeles and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges."

The MBA program consists of 36 credits. Full cost of the degree at $500 per credit is approximately $18,000 for the entire MBA program.
