Ashford, Forbes form alliance

CLINTON — Ashford University and Forbes Media have announced an alliance between the university’s School of Business and a subsidiary of the global media company.

Ashford’s College of Business and Professional Studies will now be known as the Forbes School of Business.

Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media, said this move will help Ashford’s students be effective in today’s business environment.

“This collaboration is a natural extension of what Forbes has been doing for nearly 100 years —providing people with information and insights to enable them to develop their own talent and become true entrepreneurs,” Forbes said.

Through their studies, students of the Forbes School of Business will gain online access to Forbes’ resources, from curated talent and high quality content dating back almost a century, to an extensive global network.

“Founded in 1917, Forbes has earned its global reputation as a knowledgeable, well-respected business voice,” Richard Pattenaude, president of Ashford University, said. “I look forward to our alliance with Forbes. I know it will offer numerous benefits to Ashford’s business students.”

Invitation-only speaker series and webinars will feature business experts culled from Forbes’ roster of approximately 1,200 international contributors. Forbes’ contributors also may be available to serve as guest lecturers, sharing their knowledge with Ashford’s online students.
