Need a Degree to Get Ahead? Consider the Business Program at Everest University Online.
Posted Tuesday, Sep 27, 2011 by
If you already have an entry-level job in a large organization, something that could be holding you back from advancement may be the lack of a college degree. Many companies and government agencies require college degrees of all employees placed in anything beyond basic support positions. College degrees certify the holders have strong academic backgrounds. They also demonstrate the holders can think critically, manage time, handle responsibility, follow through on long-term commitments, and deal with pressure — the very qualities organizations tend to look for when promoting employees.
Of course, getting a college degree when you already have a job can be difficult. Most traditional schools hold classes during normal “business hours.” Even if you can find a college or university with night/weekend classes, going to school means spending even more time away from home. When you add in all the time you need to travel to and from school, the idea of getting a college degree may seem like an impossible dream.
Fortunately, if you believe a college degree can improve your professional situation, you now have the option of earning an associate or bachelor’s degree in Business via the Internet through Everest University Online, a division of Everest University. Everest’s associate and bachelor’s degree programs are designed to be completed in two or four years, assuming you can invest a few evening hours Monday through Friday, as well as some time on weekends. As soon as you begin the associate or bachelor’s degree Business program, you’ll learn valuable concepts you may be able to apply immediately to your work. And upon graduation, you’ll have a degree from a nationally accredited university* you can use to add power and depth to your resume.
Unlike many other universities that require you to study everything from history to the humanities, Everest focuses the bulk of its classes on topics specific to your degree. Its Business courses cover such subjects as accounting, finance, business communication, human resources and marketing. Instructors are not academicians, but actual business professionals. A lot of coursework uses real-world business challenges and scenarios. Upon graduation, students can get support from the school’s Career Services department, which provides help with everything from resume writing to setting up interviews with potential employers.
And because the program in online, you choose your schedule. You determine your pace. You don’t have to sacrifice your job — or your family — to earn the degree you may need to succeed.
