The Contemporary Management Program, designed specifically for working adults, provides the academic credentials and advanced skills necessary for upward mobility in area businesses. This “accelerated” degree program combines reduced in-class instruction with outside assignments; therefore, each 4-credit course meets only one night per week for five weeks plus an additional eight-hour summary session. This unique program design allows working adults to earn a degree in a short period of time while keeping their full-time job. In addition, individuals may receive credit through a portfolio process for prior college-level learning whether in a classroom or on the job. Faculty assessors will review each participant's background and grant credit if applicable.
Because of its fast-paced format, a very high level of maturity and dedication will be required of students in this program. Each student should discuss his/her interest in taking these accelerated courses with a faculty advisor from the business department.
