Trends in online education are related to the economic climate. Business professionals are preparing themselves early by doing the research and getting the education to prepare for the certifications they anticipate are needed. In a recent survey of students conducted by KCE, 75% of people who stated continuing education as a company benefit is important to them.
“We are constantly watching the online education industry and listening to what students need to succeed in their professional business careers. Often times, individuals are looking to their employers to provide continuing education as a corporate benefit. Online education trends continue to move upward, and we continue to strive to provide the maximum opportunities for our students,” said Ron Trautman, president of Kaplan Continuing Education. “Our certificate programs are set up so that students can continue their normal routine, but at the same time pursue professional business education. Not knowing if your skills will be in demand has forced many employees to be better prepared.”
