DeSales MBA – TAA and WIA Funding

30 Mar 2012 by Tina Hicks, No Comments »

Even with the current job market looking up, many people are still being affected by unemployment and the movement of jobs overseas.  We’re excited to inform you that DeSales University has become an approved training provider with the Pennsylvania state unemployment benefits TAA (Trade Adjustment Assistance) and WIA (Workforce Investment Act).

For those of you who are unfamiliar with these programs, TAA is a federally-funded employment program that assists workers whose jobs have been impacted by foreign imports, while WIA provides federal job training funds for adults and dislocated workers.  DeSales University’s part-time MBA program is one of the DeSales University programs that are approved for TAA and WIA funding.  The DeSales University part-time MBA program is conveniently offered at the following locations: Center Valley, Easton, Lansdale, Pocono Medical Center, Immaculata, Lehigh Valley Hospital and Online.

For more information on TAA and WIA, visit the following sites:
Trade Adjustment Assistance
Workforce Investment Act

To determine your eligibility to participate in either of these programs:

1.  Verify that your employer has been approved to participate in TAA and/or WIA by contacting the CareerLink Office in your county:

 2.  If your employer has approved TAA and/or WIA benefits, speak with your CareerLink Office, identify three program choices (one can be DeSales University’s part-time MBA program if you want to attend our program) and complete the necessary paperwork.

3.  Talk with an MBA advisor and create a detailed outline of your program completion plan which will be submitted to PA CareerLink website.  Your PA CareerLink counselor will review this information and notify Harrisburg. 

4.  Complete a formal application packet for admissions to DeSales University’s part-time MBA program.  (The $50 application fee is waived for eligible TAA/WIA applicants)

Upon approval, begin your course work in the DeSales’ MBA program.  All coursework must be completed within a two year period as outlined with your academic advisor.
