BANGOR, MAINE - Husson announced today that it has entered into an agreement with the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce to provide all of the employees of their member organizations, who enroll in any of the University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs, with a 10 percent tuition discount.

“Working professionals in the greater Bangor area are interested in obtaining the advanced knowledge available in our MBA programs in order to make their organizations more successful,” said Melissa Rosenberg, director of graduate admissions at Husson University. “Working with the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce has provided us with the opportunity to extend higher education services to these professionals at a special discounted rate.”

The 10 percent reduction in tuition costs applies to all of Husson University’s MBA programs. These include the traditional Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with a general/corporate focus and Husson MBA programs with concentrations in biotechnology and innovation, data analytics, healthcare management, hospitality management, organizational management and risk management.

Those who follow the admissions procedures to become graduate students at Husson University will also receive a $50 application fee waiver.
