Tuition Reduction Awarded to Leadership Stark County Participants


The Malone University School of Business and Leadership has partnered with Leadership Stark County to offer a tuition reduction to participants in the LSC program. 

The 15 percent tuition reduction applies to all adult studies programs including master’s degrees in education, counselor education, theological studies, business administration, nursing, and organizational leadership; as well as the University’s accelerated bachelor degree completion program in management, with concentrations in organizational, project, health services, marketing, and environmental management.

Marjorie Carlson-Hurst, D.B.A., dean of the School of Business and Leadership said that this is an excellent opportunity for Malone University to support the fine work Leadership Stark County is doing in training leaders for Stark County and, “it is an example of collaboration that will benefit the community.” 

Tracy Jeffries, development and marketing manager for Junior Achievement of East Central Ohio and a member of Leadership Stark County’s 24th Signature Class, says, “I am very excited about the discount! The discount doubles my investment in Leadership Stark County as well as helps finance my goal of completing my undergraduate degree in business management. Malone University and Leadership Stark County have long recognized the importance of having a bachelor’s degree in this economy when searching for a new job or moving into a leadership role in an existing company. I applaud their partnership and say thank you to both!”
