BANGOR, MAINE – The Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce and Husson University announced today that they have signed an agreement to provide all of the Chamber’s employees and the employees of their member organizations, who enroll in any of the University’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs, with a 10% tuition discount.
