          Edinboro’s Miller to discuss MBA program at annual Pittsburgh Business Show

          Dr. Scott Miller, Dean of Edinboro University’s School of Business and College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, will present at the 2018 Pittsburgh Business Show, the region’s largest business-for-business trade show and networking event being held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center on April 25-26.

          Dr. Miller brings a wide variety of administrative experiences in higher education and has served on multiple departmental, college, university and system-wide committees. Additionally, he has provided high-level legal and business advice to individuals and small and medium businesses, and has represented Fortune 500 companies in various transactions.

          “Edinboro University has been approved to create a bold, new MBA program that redefines the modern MBA. My presentation will introduce our innovative approach to delivering an MBA through new programmatic structure, content and delivery,” said Miller, who has served as Dean of Business since 2012. “The program breaks down the silos found in traditional MBA programs by focusing on decision making and the impact of decision making on stakeholders, including analysis of how leadership decisions affect certain stakeholders such as employers, employees, creditors and investors.”

          The Pittsburgh Business Show will also be the host of an alumni networking event on Wednesday, April 25, from 6-9 p.m. All Edinboro alumni are invited to connect with former classmates and make professional contacts. Complimentary appetizers and a cash bar will be available. Dr. Miller will be in attendance to meet alumni and answer questions about the University’s new MBA program.

          To receive tickets to the networking event including a 2-day ticket to the show, the Pittsburgh Business Show is requesting a minimum financial donation of $1. All of the funds that are donated will be used to establish an MBA scholarship program that will be created by the Pittsburgh Business Show.

          “I’m excited to be involved with the launch of the University’s new MBA program as well as helping to create the first scholarship for this program,” said Linda Jo Thornberg, an Edinboro University alumna and President of the Pittsburgh Business Show. “As a business owner, I know how important it is to continue your education and enhance your skills. This new program is innovative and flexible, allowing people to work while earning their MBA.”

          This year’s show includes more than 300 exhibitors, 40 speakers and workshops, and several networking events for business owners, executives, and employees. The agenda also features new events including the inaugural Business Choice Awards, speed networking opportunities and the Pittsburgh Business Pitch.Those interested in attending the Show and participating in the networking events and presentations can receive 2-day discounted tickets.
