From higher salary potential to job security, the new University Alliance catalog reveals the top 10 reasons for continuing your education 100% online
While some potential students may believe that continuing education is out of their financial reach, the catalog reveals that acquiring new skills is well worth the reward and even offers four ways to pay. Statistics from reputable organizations such as the Project Management Institute, the Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals and others demonstrate that individuals with advanced training and aptitudes are more valuable to employers, and that an investment in continuing education can result in higher salary potential, increased job security, career advancement, job growth and more.
High-return investments in education for 2012 include project management and Lean Six Sigma, both offered by Villanova University. The university prepares students for in-demand PMP® certification, and is an exclusive provider of Six Sigma certification online. Other areas that can lead to big return include leadership and management from the University of Notre Dame, Internet marketing training from the University of San Francisco, sustainable innovation from the University of Vermont and supply chain management from Michigan State University, which offers five certificates online. Through the convenience of their computer or mobile device, students enrolled in these courses will engage in highly interactive, instructor-led video-based learning, featuring discussion boards, simulations and live online chat rooms.
To give students an opportunity to gain in-demand skills within a variety of areas, the catalog also features a new promotion running through 7/31/12. Upon enrollment in any multi-course certificate program, students will receive $500 off an additional course.
“We’re very proud to help professionals invest in their future with convenient, cost-effective online certificate programs from top-ranked universities,” says Adrian Marrullier, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of University Alliance. “With today’s increasing competition for jobs, gaining new skills can help professionals stand out from the crowd and revitalize their resumes.”
