Cheyney University, the historically Black educational institution in Pennsylvania, is teaming up with La Salle University in Philadelphia in a program that will provide educational opportunities for Black students in La Salle’s MBA program. The partnership will guarantee five slots each academic year for qualified students from Cheyney to enter La Salle’s MBA program.
Under the agreement, students will be able to complete their MBA degree in one year, provided they have taken the required business courses at Cheyney as undergraduates. Under the agreement, Cheyney students will be eligible for scholarship grants to offset tuition costs at La Salle.
Tara Kent, dean of the Keystone Honors College at Cheyney, said that “this is the beginning of a good partnership that will benefit both institutions.”
