InC and JCEMP student graduation celebration
A unique graduation celebration this Friday (July 25) at Minot State University will give 35 students from across the country and the world a chance to smile for the camera!
Minot State University will honor graduates in two programs. Nine students from the Job Corps Executive Management Program and 26 from the Intercultural Cohort Program will have a celebration in their honor from 2 to 4 p.m. at Anne Nicole Nelson Hall on the MSU campus. A reception will immediately follow the two-hour event.
The JCEMP is the only program of its kind in the country. The í08 graduating class is the eighth time students from across the country have gathered at MSU. The fellows are junior to midlevel managers from Job Corps who aspire to be center directors. Two of those involved in the graduation celebration are Troy Potter and Don Hamm, both currently at the Minot Quentin Burdick Job Corps. The JCEMP is funded by a U.S. Department of Labor earmark sponsored by North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan. Minot State is very proud of our connection to the Job Corps Centers.
In its first year, Minot Stateís on-campus version of the Master of Science in management program has both foreign and domestic graduates. The Intercultural Cohort Program combines 15 Chinese students, as outlined in MSUís partnership with SIAS International University, with 11 domestic students. Students completed a 12-month program of study, taking two eight-week courses at a time. The 26 students were required to complete applied research projects in intercultural teams. This gave them an opportunity to learn more about each otherís culture and business practices.
