Northwood University announces first dealership M.B.A. class graduates

Article by Christian A., on December 31, 2010

U.S. auto dealerships are expected to benefit from the expertise of the new graduates from Northwood University’s DeVos Graduate School of Management. At the Dec. 11 commencement ceremony, 18 individuals received their diplomas.

They are the first class to graduate from the Dealership Executive M.B.A. program at the university, which is based in Midland, Mich. What this master’s degree program teaches are leadership and management skills.

The program began in 2008 and spans 27 months. According to John Young, Northwood University vice president, the program prepares students for greater roles at dealerships and the organizations that work with them. He said that the program “covers all aspects of dealerships and incorporates it into an M.B.A.”

Nearly half of the graduating students already work at dealerships while the others have experienced working with automakers, vehicle financing companies and firms that analyze the auto industry.

Another graduate, Rick Levitin, an Infiniti dealer product and service trainer at Nissan North America, said that he has gained the skills to win over challenges and cope with changes in the auto industry. [via autonews - sub. required]
