Why do I need an MBA in Maine?

Maine has had its share of financial institutions gravitate to the state and install substantial facilities. Unum Provident Corporation runs much of its insurance business out of Portland, with several thousand employees. MBNA moved into Camden and developed a facility as well. These facilities often have call centers and personal-contact marketing campaigns. Success requires competent managers with a Maine MBA's knowledge to handle the diverse workforce in such an environment.

Weather can influence the best laid plans in Maine and so shipping is an important management function.  Wal-Mart has a regional distribution facility in Auburn, thanks to assiduous courting by the state’s economic development staff. Getting their trucks into southern New England can prove to be a serious management challenge.

High tech firms are also moving into the area as well as venture capital firms who have based themselves in Portland or Brunswick.  Often these firms are long on design talent and short on business acumen.  Individuals who have earned their MBA in Maine and can prepare balance sheets, income and cash flow statements and make financial decisions based on the numbers before them are invaluable to their companies.
