Lake Erie College is set to initiate a new online Masters in Professionals Studies degree offered by its School of Business with the intention to support a variety of professionals at various levels in their careers.
A news release by the Painesville college states the program will “develop sought-after and marketable skills in areas such as organizational dynamics, leadership, negotiation, and problem-solving.”
Business Dean Jenni Kinnaird said the new master’s program will offer benefits for those seeking to improve their professional abilities while providing a time-friendly learning experience.
“The degree provides both the opportunity to develop specific skills that employers are looking for and the flexibility for students to tailor and complete a degree that meets their specific needs and interests,” Kinnaird said
According to the release, the program will consist of three concentrations: Professional Communication, Organizational Behavior Management and an Interdisciplinary option that “allows students to customize a degree that aligns with their career goals and professional aspirations.”
The degree will look to use faculty experience and engagement with community companies and organizations that will provide students with the ability to be in professional-oriented engagements.
The program will be offered to those with a bachelor’s degree in any field who look to improve their professional skills or those with the intention of getting into a professional workplace.
