Along with basic business courses, students will receive in-depth computer, networking and web page development courses. The entire program is 19 months long and can be taken completely online. “We received feedback at our Program Advisory Committee (PAC) meetings about the demand and desire for a web development specific business program that can be taken totally online,” states Campus Executive Director, Dean Claud. PACs are formed by industry specific individuals that review the school offerings and help determine if the school’s students will be in-demand in the workforce upon graduation. “Given the continued growth in the internet for advertising, marketing, and communications purposes, it’s not surprising that web developers are becoming more and more in demand” continues Claud.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), web development is one of the fastest growing industries and has an expected U.S. employment growth rate of 20-28% by 2020. Between 2010 and 2020, a projected 65,700 positions will need to be filled.
Currently, the online campus also offers Associates in Business with concentrations in Accounting and Management.
