Tunxis Community College has announced a new accelerated Business Administration certificate program that can be completed in six months online, for those students who need the convenience of online classes and want to finish their certificate in a shorter timeframe.
The 21-credit certificate is comprised of seven courses in accounting, business law and ethics, software applications, economics, management and marketing. Courses are offered fully online in 3-, 7- and 8-week semesters. Spring 2017 7-week accelerated business classes include “Business Software Applications” and “Principles of Finance,” starting Jan. 19 and March 20 respectively. Limited spots are still available in both courses.
Taught by Tunxis faculty, all courses from the certificate can also be applied toward the associate degree in business, shortening the time to finish the program’s associate degree as well.
“We created this new accelerated business certificate to address the needs of working adults who want to enhance their business skills in the most convenient way possible,” said Tunxis Business Administration professor and program coordinator Amy Feest. “Most career certificates take a year or more to complete, but we know that many working professionals don’t have that much time if they want to stay competitive in the job market.”
The business program represents the largest field of study at Tunxis, helping to prepare students for growing employment opportunities with courses in accounting, management, business law, ethics, finance, economics, entrepreneurship and marketing. Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), the program stresses real-world business practices, leadership, decision-making and technology. During the final year of study, students are able to apply their knowledge in internships with the area’s leading employers.
Through guaranteed admissions programs and transfer agreements, Tunxis business students who complete an associate degree can seamlessly transfer their credits to a four-year baccalaureate business program at the Connecticut State Universities, UConn School of Business regional campuses, Charter Oak State College, and many private colleges.
Business continues to be among the top programs in greatest demand by employers, according to a 2016 job outlook study from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), which lists finance, business, accounting and marketing among the top bachelor’s degrees sought by companies hiring new college graduates.
Those who are interested in enrolling in prerequisites for the Tunxis online business courses are encouraged to sign up during Spring Credit Registration, which is underway now through January, with late registration on January 17.
