SAN DIEGO, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for March 15, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. CT to celebrate the newly expanded Ashford University Clinton Campus and Student Veteran Center, located at 1310 19th Avenue NW, Clinton, Iowa 52732, and the launch of the Hybrid Master of Business Administration (MBA) offered by the Forbes School of Business and Technology at Ashford University. University leadership, local community leaders and representatives from the Clinton Chamber of Commerce will be attending the ceremony.  Local community members are welcome to attend, and prospective students can learn more about the Hybrid MBA program at the event.

Ashford University has a long history of serving students through its Clinton Campus location, and it is a committed member of the Clinton community. The newly expanded Ashford Clinton Campus location, where the Hybrid MBA in-person courses will be held, now includes a second building, intended to serve as the new Student Veteran Center, which was created to better serve service members and veteran students in the area.  At the Clinton Campus, area students are welcome to schedule appointments or walk in to meet with university staff about admission, enrollment, transfer records and credits, military tuition assistance, veterans benefits, financial aid, academic advising and other student services. Veteran and military students also have access to computers, printers, internet and various printed materials to include military publications and veterans’ services information.  Online students who do not reside in the area will also have access to campus staff members and services through Ashford’s online military and veteran student center.

In addition, the Forbes School of Business and Technology is launching the Hybrid MBA degree program at the Clinton Campus this spring. The Hybrid MBA blends in-person instruction with an online learning component for each core course in the program.

«We are thrilled to be continuing our strong partnership with the Clinton community and surrounding areas. The strength of the Hybrid MBA format, which will be offered at our newly expanded Clinton Campus location, is that it allows students to complete most of their coursework online without sacrificing the personal instruction and interaction of classes on campus,» said Dr. Craig Swenson, President of Ashford University. «The hybrid program is an ideal option for working adults and other busy students who want to move their education and careers forward.»

The Hybrid MBA program, which offers 14 different specializations in specific business areas, focuses on interrelationships between the various functional business disciplines and development of a strong foundation in analytical management skills. The curriculum includes topics such as marketing, law, statistics, accounting, economics and operations. Students who are admitted and enrolled in the MBA hybrid format program offered at the Clinton Campus will receive a tuition grant that reduces tuition to $250 per credit for the life of their program.
