Cenquest Selected by NYU Stern to Web-enable Core Courses for its #1 Ranked Part-time MBA Program
E-learning company, Cenquest, today
announced it has been chosen by NYU Stern to transform for online delivery components
of the core courses offered in the Langone Program: A Part-Time MBA for Working
Professionals. Stern’s Langone Program was recently ranked the top part-time
MBA program in the country by U.S. News & World Report. By making selected
modules of each core course available online, Stern students will gain the added
flexibility and convenience needed to manage more effectively the balance between
work, family and classroom responsibilities.
Cenquest was selected because of the e-learning company’s expertise in
transforming traditional university curricula into a highly effective online
learning experience. Cenquest will work closely with Stern professors to create
comprehensive and engaging online components of the classes.
“Our key objective is to deliver a premier educational experience that
also encompasses a high level of flexibility for our students who are managing
full-time careers in addition to our rigorous MBA program,” said Kim Corfman,
academic director of NYU Stern’s Langone Program. “Cenquest will enable
us to provide students with an e-learning model that will be applied to components
of certain courses, making it easier to complete assignments and interact with
professors and classmates outside of the classroom.”
Cenquest’s past experience with NYU Stern includes collaborative work
on the highly acclaimed global TRIUM Executive MBA program. TRIUM, an innovative
alliance between NYU Stern, the London School of Economics and Political Science
(LSE), and HEC School of Management, Paris (HEC Paris) “offers the world”
first truly global MBA program. Cenquest’s e-learning component is being
used as a “home base” for students and complements the face-to-face
in-class portion of the program.
“Cenquest has gained a reputation among leading universities for designing
and delivering highly effective online versions of a school’s traditional
curriculum,” said LaVonne Reimer, CEO of Cenquest. “Our goal with
the Langone program is to create an engaging learning experience that provides
working professionals with the added flexibility they often need to successfully
manage work, school and personal responsibilities.”
Online components of the core courses of Stern’s part-time MBA Langone
Program will be rolled out to Stern MBA students beginning in Spring 2002.
