DUDLEY, Mass.—Nichols College Graduate & Professional Studies (GPS) Executive Director Kerry Calnan was interviewed by Worcester Business Journal about the reported nationwide downward trend in MBA program applications. In the Dec. 10, 2018, article “Colleges Rethink MBA Programs Amid Application Decline,” Calnan reports, however, that the Nichols MBA program has grown an average of 40 percent annually over the past five years, bucking the national trend. She also talks about the flexibility the Nichols program offers, and how it responds to employers’ needs.
