Speed Reading indispensable for MBA students at Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business
The J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University is partnering with Speed Reading International Inc. to offer the ExecuRead Speed Reading & Comprehension Skills training course to students and the business community in Atlanta Georgia.
“The ExecuRead course has become indispensable to our students" says Robinson’s Executive MBA (EMBA) Program Director, Laura Crawley, Ph.D. "Two pilot courses were offered in 2010 to test the impact of and response to this training. Our students experienced immediate results and we’ve received inquiries from Atlanta businesses about further offerings.” The pilot courses were primarily aimed at Robinson EMBA students, but also offered limited access to the Atlanta business community. "The increased demand, from both our students and the Atlanta business community, for this training, has prompted us to double the number of ExecuRead courses at our College of Business this year."
In addition to the Robinson students and faculty, the courses this year will be open to students and faculty from other colleges and universities and especially to the business community who are aiming to increase work productivity without incurring additional overhead costs.
“Inadequate reading, comprehension and studying skills are a major factor hampering academic and business productivity” says ExecuRead coach and president of Speed Reading International, Dr. Bruce Stewart. “With people today reading no faster than a century ago, and with the volumes of reading required to remain competitive in a fast-changing world, it’s becoming even more critical to keep pace with new information. Working with the Robinson College of Business, ranked 23rd among U.S.-based programs and 65th globally by the Financial Times, is testimony to the importance and urgent need to improve adult reading efficacy.”
The ExecuRead course was designed by South African, Dr. Stewart and launched in the USA in 2001. Now used by the Pentagon, NASA, US Marine Corps, the Navy SEALs, USAF, Special Operations Command and Fortune 500 companies, the ExecuRead program increases reading speed, comprehension and retention in all types of reading material, from high-responsibility technical reading to general-knowledge leisure reading.
