Tampa, Fla. — July 11
Florida Institute of Technology introduced seven new mini MBA for-credit graduate certificates. The mini MBA allows professionals to obtain post-baccalaureate education in less time and with less of a financial commitment compared to traditional MBAs. Students will engage in graduate-level courses within a condensed format that allows them to finish in as little as eight months, earning a mini MBA for-credit graduate certificate in one of the following specializations:
• Health care management
• Information technology management
• Internet marketing
“Financial security, career advancement, personal achievement … there are lots of reasons people seek higher education,” said Adrian Marrullier, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of University Alliance, which connects professionals with online programs from universities. “These new mini MBAs are a very realistic option, especially for those already engaged in a full-time career.”
According to a 2011 Skills and Salary Report released by Global Knowledge, professionals who engage in training courses earn almost $10,000 more than those who do not. So not only are students advancing their aptitudes, they’re likely to increase their income. Each of Florida Tech’s mini MBA online certificate programs is for credit, so students who complete all four courses will have earned 12 semester-credit hours.
“From effective leadership and negotiation to critical decision-making and managing change, students really become more well-rounded in all aspects of business, and that’s critical to succeeding in today’s global market,” said S. Ann Becker, dean of the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business.
