Description

About The Global Graduate Preparatory Program (GradPrep)

As a result of MBADiversity’s growth and achievement, and because of feedback from members who wish to pursue interdisciplinary or other graduate degrees, The Global Graduate Preparatory Program (GradPrep) was conceptualized in 2007 to assist with the multidisciplinary pre-application process, professional and spiritual development of its members.

GradPrep assists with professional development that allows members to gain confidence and relevant knowledge in the job market and their selected vocation. Members also participate in cross-cultural training and, through our Global Immersion Module (GIM), have the opportunity to strengthen their global acumen through international internships and engaging in humanitarian and missionary projects. In 2008, members embarked on a 10-day international trip to Shanghai, China where they learned basic Mandarin, participated in Nike’s Human Race and also conducted marketing research for Alaska Glacier Water and The Shanghai Business Review.

For the 2010 GIM community service project, the 6th generation of MBADiversity - "Perseverance" - positively impacted the children of migrant workers through improving their English language abilities and tutoring them to pass their middle school entrance examinations.

In 2012, GradPrep began recruitment for its Professional Development Program and Retreat to assist pre-graduates with leadership development and life coaching to identify and blueprint their life calling.

One of the charitable missions of GradPrep is to help low-income, underserved students who have enormous potential but may lack access to test preparation, graduate school application counseling, or guidance in exploring discipline specialties.
