We look forward to providing the opportunity to seek advanced career paths to our students in Illinois as we expand these opportunities to three additional campuses with the Bachelor’s in Business Management Degree program
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
Rasmussen College announced today it will begin offering Bachelor’s degree programs through its Illinois college campuses in Aurora, Rockford, and Romeoville/Joliet, beginning with a Bachelor’s in Business Management Degree program in July. The new Rasmussen College Mokena/Tinley Park campus will begin enrollment for the Bachelor’s in Business Management Degree program this summer. The Illinois campuses join Rasmussen College campuses in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida, and North Dakota in offering both Bachelor’s and Associate’s campus-based and online business degree programs.
“Rasmussen College has offered Bachelor’s degree programs through our School of Business to students nationwide for eight years,” Rasmussen College Director of the School of Business Kathy Heldman said. “We look forward to providing the opportunity to seek advanced career paths to our students in Illinois as we expand these opportunities to three additional campuses with the Bachelor’s in Business Management Degree program.”
In recent years, higher education requirements from employers have grown, bringing increased opportunities to Bachelor’s degree holders. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook (2010-11 Edition), Bachelor’s degree holders see an average salary increase of $10,000 compared to those with Associate’s degrees. Actual employment prospects have also improved, with 95% of all Bachelor’s degree holders employed.
As they strive to compete in an increasingly global marketplace, businesses in almost every industry benefit from the leadership provided by business management professionals. The Rasmussen College Bachelor’s in Business Management Degree program prepares students to master a variety of communications and administrative responsibilities, including human resources, customer service, and business ethics.
“Illinois has experienced higher than average unemployment in recent months, with a rate of 11.2 percent, compared to slightly below 10 percent nationally,” Rasmussen College Vice President of Academic Programs Carie Ann Potenza said. “Our new Bachelor’s degree offering will provide local residents the opportunity to stand out in the competitive job market and respond to the needs of growing industries.”
Graduates of the Bachelor’s in Business Management Degree program may go on to become managers in a variety of capacities, including human resources, retail, operations, marketing, advertising, and promotions. The program is designed to increase students’ marketability in the job search process or increase effectiveness and motivate salary growth in their current positions.
