MBA Roundtable Membership

The University Division of WorldStrides, Accent and TravelMBA, is pleased to announce its membership to the MBA Roundtable, an organization in which it has participated as a non-member for the past four years.

The MBA Roundtable provides a forum for business schools to share resources and research and to collaborate on curricular innovation in MBA education. To secure its membership, the University Division of WorldStrides has demonstrated a commitment to education, collaboration, and continuous improvement—most recently illustrated by its accreditation through AdvancED.

Accent and TravelMBA currently support more than one third of the MBA Roundtable’s 167 members and over 100 total universities with international immersion experiences for students and faculty. Amy Westby, Director of Education at WorldStrides, said, “We are excited to share our 35 years of expertise in creating unique global business immersion experiences for MBA programs and to collaborate with other Roundtable members to improve all aspects of the MBA curriculum.”

Carleen Kerttula, Executive Director of the MBA Roundtable, expressed her excitement at expanding her organization’s membership. “We appreciate the support of the University Division of WorldStrides and its willingness to join us as a member organization,” she said.

The University Division of WorldStrides looks forward to supporting the MBA Roundtable community in a number of ways, including research support, conference panel development, and collaboration with other members to enhance MBA education.
