Press Release from Marist College:
POUGHKEEPSIE – As employees consider career changes during the current recession, a new, non-degree executive education certificate offered by Marist College starting next week is designed to enhance professionals’ careers and hone their business skills.
The Marist College School of Global and Professional Programs has tailored the non-degree certificate program for supervisors, middle managers, and small-business owners.
“MBA Basics for Today’s World” will look at the changing global economy, 21st- century legal issues, and essential topics in accounting, finance, and marketing. Course modules in leader effectiveness and career planning will round out the fast-paced program.
“MBA Basics is designed to equip those who may already have their degrees with the latest tools and cutting-edge techniques in basic business principles such as finance, accounting, and marketing,” said Dr. Lauren Mounty, dean of the School of Global and Professional Programs. “It is perfect for professionals who may need to hone their skills for a job transition or for those who just do not have the time for a full MBA degree right now.”
MBA Basics is offered in two convenient formats: a five-week online option, which gets underway on March 30, and an on-site offering that meets one Saturday per month for three months at Marist’s executive center in Fishkill.
