Tabor to launch online A.S. degree in business in 2015

Tabor College?s School of Adult & Graduate Studies in Wichita will be launching an associate of science degree in business beginning January 2015.

The new degree is designed for adult students. The college describes the program as ?an excellent educational experience paired with the convenience of online classes?all in an affordable package supported by world-class customer service.?

Brett Andrews, executive vice president of Tabor College in Wichita, said there is a need for people trained with this particular degree.

?According to government data, small businesses represent the largest growing segment of the economy,? he said. ?There is a need for employees of those small businesses to quickly get the skills they need to be successful. This program helps them meet that goal.?

The associate in business program can equip the student with the basic knowledge and skills to become a competent leader in most business positions.

The curriculum is intended to challenge the student to develop personal integrity and values that will set him or her apart in today?s business world.

Andrews said he is excited that Tabor can now offer business education at all three levels of degrees?associates, bachelors and masters, both on campus and online. This will benefit a variety of adults, with varying educational levels.

?There is a large percentage of our population who would like to have a degree and already have some college education,? Andrews said. ?This degree program was designed to make transferring credit into our college very easy.?

In addition to business degrees, Tabor College?s Wichita campus offers classes on-campus and online courses in the areas of ministry, nursing and general education.

Enrollment for this program and others is now under way for courses starting in January. For more information, call 316-729-6333 or visit online.tabor.edu.
