First two Business at Night students to earn certificate
Two Mitchell Community College students are on track to earn a Management certificate in December 2016 from the College’s new Business at Night program. Thangee Griffin and Belinda Rumple (pictured above with dean Mark Smalley, instructor Phil Holleran and Mitchell president Dr. Tim Brewer) both began the program in fall 2016 due to the convenience of night classes. These students will be the first to receive credentialing from this new program.
The Business at Night program, which launched in fall 2016, is designed for working adults and will allow students to attend two 8-week night courses once a week. The courses are hybrid, meaning material is both online and in a seated classroom format. Select course options may even be completely online. The specific sequence of courses is set to allow students to earn up to three certificates as they progress toward the full associate’s degree.
Night business courses have previously been offered in both Statesville and Mooresville with a good response from students. The Business at Night program, a first for Mitchell’s Mooresville Campus, will focus on expanding offerings in a way that promotes attainable student success. “We are very excited about this program and the step-by-step path it will give students,” noted program coordinator Phil Holleran.
