ASU Polytechnic needs to offer MBA Programs for non traditional students/Evening classes
Currently, There is no traditional universities in Mesa that offer Evening classes for MBA, etc. This will not only increase revenue at polytechnic at E Mesa will also server over 100,000 professionals living from mesa, gilbert, south chandler, queen creek, san tan coolidge and so forth.

This is an excellant idea. There is a huge professional population that is underserved.. Masters programs are a big bonus in attracting top tallent into business, developing an indivudal's business skills and attracting new businesses to our community. The biggest professional mistake I have made was NOT going after an MBA. I'm an architect and 64 years old, and I feel that in my already sucessfull career, my business would have been much more sucessfull (especially in my earily years) had I had an stonger business education. In addition, I would have had more flexability in my career during the econmic downturns that I have seen over the length of my career. I now have 2 sons with MBA's and I feel their career's will greatly benefit from their increased education.
Also, I'm a big supporter of having a State College System that provides a four year Bachelor degree and is not tied to the existing University system, but rather an extension of the current Junior College System. This is a more affordable educational model for both the tax payers and the students. Our current University System has gotten to be too large, and does a inadaquate job of provideing an education to the working people who usually live far from campus. On-line courses are great, but is a poor subsitute for classroom instruction because they lack the social and intellectual stimulation that is an intergal part of any well rounded education experiance.
