A National Association of Colleges and Employers study, conducted this past April, reveals that 61% of employers surveyed are looking to hire business majors in 2011. Recognizing that these employers will be seeking candidates with advanced business acumen and strong leadership skills, Florida Tech has added a Mini MBA For-Credit Graduate Certificate with a specialization in Management to its program offerings. The new program joins Florida Tech’s world-class associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, providing students with four options to pursue depending on their current position, education level, and personal and professional goals.
From its well-respected professors to its dedication to innovation, U.S. News & World Report-ranked Florida Tech has been building a reputation for excellence since 1958. Students who complete one of the four management programs will join 50,000 alumni, many of whom have gone on to successful careers in business. Enrolling in a Florida Tech management program not only provides students with leadership and management techniques, it offers a broader business perspective, exposing students to all business-related disciplines. And, because of the wide range of management responsibilities – leading and inspiring, predicting trends and initiating change, making decisions and problem solving – possessing knowledge in all areas is critical.
“With employment and hiring conditions improving, earning a degree or graduate certificate from a business school can certainly help you stand out during the interview process,” says Adrian Marullier, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of University Alliance, which also provides enrollment and support services to Florida Tech University Online. “Higher education also makes you more valuable to a company, which adds to your strengths when critical workforce decisions need to be made, from promotions to layoffs.”
Another benefit of Florida Tech’s programs is their 100% online availability. Students will be immersed in a multimedia e-learning environment, allowing them to interact with faculty and fellow classmates while engaging in live chats, streaming video and discussion boards. Students completing an Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration, BA Management degree or MBA Management degree all receive the same diploma as main-campus students, while the new Mini MBA in management provides a career-building credential that can revitalize a resume. Students enrolled in a Mini MBA online program take some of the same courses as graduate-level students, but the accelerated format allows them to complete their studies in as little as 8 months. In addition, the program provides them with graduate semester-credit hours, so if they decide to pursue a management MBA online through Florida Tech in the future, they’re already 1/3 of the way there.
Admission for each program is on a continual basis. For more details, and to discover how Florida Tech’s online business courses can help you achieve your professional and personal goals, visit www.floridatechonline.com.
