With the high cost of college today and the uncertainty surrounding employment, many young adults are choosing career-focused education options as opposed to pursuing traditional, four-year liberal arts degrees.
A wide variety of skill-based training is available through accredited business schools and even adults who have been in the workforce for years are now turning to this option as a way to secure a more viable future career.
The Benefits of Attending an Accredited Business School
Practical Training: When attending a school like the Harris School of Business, students receive hands-on training that truly prepares them for their future careers. They are able to learn practical skills and enter the workforce ready to hit the ground running!
Helpful Support Services: Many accredited business schools, including Harris, have committed to a high level of student support. Of course, this support exists within the classroom, but it also extends outside of just the instructor-student relationship. Many of the programs offered by such schools help students to connect with externship opportunities that can even better prepare them for their future career. In addition, dedicated career services offices help students prepare resumes, practice for interviews and look for jobs.
Recognized Education: When looking at career program options, you want to be sure that the schools to which you are applying are accredited by a higher body. When students attend an accredited program, they reap the benefits upon graduation when employers look at their training and recognize the institution as a reputable school.
With these benefits in mind, take a look at the various programs and campus locations offered by the Harris School of Business. Each of our campuses is accredited by recognized accrediting agencies.
