Forever Masters: Learning for Life

Randy Richards

April 2017

"When I graduated, a lot of people were looking at this as 'I completed the program,'" St. Ambrose Master of Organizational Leadership graduate Steve Ambrozi recently shared with the Quad City Times. ''To me this isn't an end, but just a beginning. I was thinking 'What am I going to do with it? How do I stay up to date?'"

Ambrozi and other master's and doctoral level alumni seeking continuing education along with a lasting connection with their graduate school and classmates now can find that in the new St. Ambrose University College of Business Forever MastersTM program.

Alumni of COB graduate degree programs — H. L. McLaughlin Master of Business Administration, Master of Organizational Leadership, Master of Accounting, and Doctor of Business Administration — now have that. All are automatically members of the Forever Masters community and will enjoy an array of new benefits.

These include:

• access to training and professional advancement through the St. Ambrose Professional Development Center;
• an open invitation to special events throughout the year;
• and interactive sharing of digital content important and relevant to the 21st Century business professional via email and social media.

To introduce the Forever Masters program, the St. Ambrose College of Business has partnered with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, Black Hawk College and the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce to bring acclaimed business writer and editor and long-established business communication visionary Art Kleiner to the Quad Cities as keynote speaker for a series of launch events on May 1 and May 2.

On May 1 at 7 p.m. in the Rogalski Center at St. Ambrose, Kleiner will be the featured speaker at the first Forever Masters event. He will address the topic "Your Foothold in the Renaissance: The Strategic Value of Life Long Learning in Business." The event is free and open to the public. On May 2, Kleiner will speak to members of the QC Chamber and select guests at a 7:30 a.m. breakfast at the Rogalski Center. His topic will be "Strategy That Works."

Kleiner is a writer, lecturer, and consultant, with backgrounds in management, interactive media, corporate environmentalism, scenario planning, and organizational learning. He began writing about telecommunications, computer conferencing and computer technology in 1979. He is currently the Editor and Chief of Strategy and Business, PWC's global management magazine. With more than 1.3 million readers, the magazine is recognized for its distinctive coverage of business thought leadership and issues facing decision-makers.
