Northwood University unveils new graduate certificate program - Midland Daily News

Posted: 22 Jan 2021 04:37 AM PST

Business leaders looking to give their careers a powerful competitive advantage have a new option: a Northwood University Graduate Certificate in Strategic Financial Leadership.

Beginning this spring, Northwood University's DeVos Graduate School will offer a sequence of four courses that will provide the real-world, in-depth expertise needed to give graduate certificate holders an advantage throughout their careers. With 100% online courses, competitive tuition rates and a start-to-finish commitment of just nine months, the program is designed to be manageable for people at any stage of their careers.

"Northwood is well known for collaborating with the business community to tailor our courses to the practical demands of the modern economy, and we've leveraged that skillset for our Graduate Certificate in Strategic Financial Leadership program," said Lisa Fairbairn, dean of the DeVos Graduate School of Management.

All graduate certificate courses are part of Northwood's existing master of business administration and master of science in finance programs, which means those credits can later be applied to one of Northwood's graduate degrees.

The four-course sequence includes:

• Business Financial Strategic Planning (FIN 646)

• Portfolio Management (FIN 655)

• Investments (FIN 637)

• Leading and Managing People (MGT 614)

Financial professionals earn average salaries roughly twice that of those in other careers, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, which projects demand for qualified professionals in the field to far exceed that of other industries.

"Northwood University exists to develop the future leaders of a global, free-enterprise society, and this new graduate certificate program will be a great addition in an area where we see strong demand for people with the visionary education that we provide," President Kent MacDonald stated.

Thirty-six Mesa Community College veterinary technology students are participating in online basic life support and advanced life support certification courses through the Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation initiative program.

The curriculum, made available at no charge to students, offers valuable research and information on evidence-based veterinary cardiopulmonary resuscitation practices, according to a release.

"Our students are taught the R.E.C.O.V.E.R. CPR method in our VET240 anesthesia, surgical and emergency nursing course," Dr. Kimberly Focht, MCC veterinary technology program director, said in the release. "This free, online training during the pandemic allows our students to review the CPR curriculum and earn their official BLS/ALS certifications prior to entering the workforce."

Dr. Focht is pursuing R.E.C.O.V.E.R. instructor certification, preparing to offer rescuer certification for future students.

The R.E.C.O.V.E.R. initiative is a nonprofit, volunteer-run program operating within the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society and the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care.

University of Tennessee: All you need to know about Engineering Management - Study International News

Posted: 22 Jan 2021 04:23 AM PST

Jennifer Cooper's personal goal has always been to earn the most prestigious of all qualifications: a PhD. With the University of Tennessee, Knoxville's PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering (Engineering Management concentration), this is now possible. "I chose this programme because of its online options," she says.

She believes it will boost her career in several ways. "A PhD is more recognisable in my industry in showing technical expertise," Cooper says. "I would like to become a technical fellow within my company — while a PhD is not required for this, I believe it will help me show the depth of my technical knowledge."

Whether you're pursuing a master's or PhD, the professors and staff members at UT Knoxville act as anchors — giving you the freedom to explore while supporting you. "Some of the best courses that I have had are from professors that have field experience and are able to blend that experience with the course instruction," Cooper explains. Her advisor Dr. Andrew Yu has been extremely helpful and encouraging about doing research early, while

Dr. Xueping Li was always available to meet outside class times to answer modelling questions. Inspired by them, she plans to follow in their footsteps. "I have experience in different industries and would love to teach a little and share my experiences to help upcoming students in their careers," she says.

A UT Knoxville education is transformative. Apart from its continuous accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, five students have been named Goldwater Scholars, ranking UT Knoxville first in the country for the prestigious award. Its campus — which includes the UT Space Institute — spans 910 acres, with 294 buildings and over US$1 billion in projects under design and construction. The Tickle College of Engineering consists of eight departments of study, seven nationally renowned research centers, and more than 100 state-of-the-art laboratories.

It's an environment that nurtures success. The university has a longstanding history in delivering engineering programmes that open doors, boost careers and future-proof graduates. One programme that exemplifies this best is UT's Engineering Management programme. It can be conducted online and awarded at several levels: graduate certificate, master's degree or doctoral degree. This programme provides practising engineers with an experience balancing technical depth with leadership, project management, financial management, technology transfer, ethical and legal perspectives, team relations, organisational behaviour and continuous quality improvement. It's a qualification that empowers graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to lead technical organisations to success. Admission is open to graduates of ABET-accredited undergraduate curricula in engineering, or graduates of other technical curricula who satisfy prerequisites depending on their academic backgrounds.

Any working engineer, located anywhere in the world, can join this programme. Classes are streamed live and recorded for later reviewing. Peers are diverse and talented — providing ample opportunities to network. Faculty is one of the most experienced around.

"The online course format was excellent; despite the distance, I was able to communicate with my professors and successfully execute group projects," says alumnus Michelle Halsted, who completed a graduate certificate in engineering management. "I believe this virtual experience will be valuable experience and preparation for engaging with colleagues in our global society. Platforms like Google Drive and Slack do not let distance limit productivity, and Google Hangouts proved to be an effective way to host a virtual meeting."

With affordable tuition, students can earn a top-ranked US degree — the full programme, as taken by on-campus students — without sacrificing their careers or other life commitments. They can start from home, continue working while applying for a US visa and cap the whole experience with an invaluable Optional Practical Training programme.

Cooper enjoys the modelling and simulation course the most. "I've done distance education before, even while travelling. With COVID and my busy work schedule, it hasn't been easy to make time for course work and research. However, the professors and staff have been super supportive so I'm grateful," she said.

UT Knoxville faculty members are also prolific. In the 2020 list of Highly Cited Researchers from Clarivate, 6,167 researchers from more than 60 countries and regions were recognised — five were faculty members and researchers affiliated with UT Knoxville. The list is based on publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for a field (or fields) and publication year in the Web of Science citation index. "The knowledge frontier is advanced by communities of researchers who, working separately and together, make contributions to their fields," says UT Provost, Dr. John Zomchick.  "UT students have the opportunity to do research with, learn from, and be mentored by world-leading faculty researchers working at the forefront of their fields."
