Scott McIntosh, assistant professor of strategic intelligence, and Nikki Zdrojewski, graduate and adult admissions director, recently took a trip to Colorado Springs to spread the message of Newman University, largely focusing on military personnel.
Zdrojewski visited the Newman University outreach campus in Colorado Springs to act as a liaison, coordinating campus objectives between the Wichita campus and Colorado Springs. She also offered an information session about both the Master of Business Administration and the Master of Social Work degrees that the outreach campus provides.
McIntosh and Zdrojewski both visited Peterson Air Force Base and a graduate fair at the Air Force Academy.
McIntosh represented the School of Business at the military base and graduate fair. His main objective was to distribute content about Newman University — more specifically, the new Business and Strategic Intelligence program.
McIntosh serves as the principal administrator for the program and relies on both his education and military backgrounds to best teach his students. The online program is geared toward nontraditional students.
The Business and Strategic Intelligence program, launching fall 2018, is a rigorous, multifaceted program that concentrates on students’ global problem-solving skills in order to achieve an advanced level of analytical proficiency. Newman is one of few universities offering such a program. The program will leverage software and services to transform data into the actionable intelligence that informs an organization’s strategic and tactical business decisions.
“This portion of American society (the military) has traditionally enriched the student body with diverse perspectives and life experiences that translate into a more dynamic classroom and campus environment,” said McIntosh. “Newman offers both online and on-ground curricula to facilitate welcoming military and veteran students to our unique institution.”
Forging a relationship between both the Peterson Air Force Base and the Air Force Academy was only the beginning, according to McIntosh. McIntosh said he looks forward to visiting Fort Carson and other surrounding bases in Colorado in the future.
