October 22nd, 2014 | University Announcement
This morning, the Wake Forest University School of Business announced it is refocusing how its MBA program is delivered based on the changing needs of the market. We determined that the best value for Wake Forest’s employer partners and students are programs that focus on professional development without interrupting careers. Current data shows that more students prefer flexibly delivered programs that allow them to continue working, enrolling at twice the rate as traditional daytime MBA programs.
In the past five years, Wake Forest has experienced double and triple-digit growth in its MBA programs for working professionals and its pre-experience graduate programs. To allow Wake Forest to focus on emerging opportunities and continue to expand its successful and flexible MBA, the School announced today that it will no longer offer incoming students admission to a traditional daytime MBA program.

Vice Provost and Dean of Z. Smith Reynolds Library Lynn Sutton
Dear Wake Forest Faculty, Staff and Students,
In May 2014, a committee of Wake Foresters representing various areas of the University completed a review of the technological landscape in higher education and began the important challenge of exploring what the future of collaborative work might look like in the next five years.
After site visits, interviews and research, the committee produced “Vision 2020: Charting A Course for Academic Computing at Wake Forest,” a white paper that envisions how technology changes already underway can support teaching and learning at Wake Forest.
From an environmental scan to recommendations regarding teaching and learning, the 27-page report offers informative and insightful details on IT-based technology and higher education. We would like to showcase several important points from the paper as people begin to delve more deeply into Vision 2020.
