College Offers Accelerated, Eight-Week Business Courses

December 19, 2008
To meet the demand for a quick transition to gainful employment, Anoka-Ramsey Community College is offering eight-week Business courses at both its Cambridge Campus and Coon Rapids Campus. With the current economic situation causing unprecedented employment losses, the college is providing these courses to encourage people to upgrade skills or invest in new ones.
"These eight week, half-semester courses allow students the opportunity to package Business courses during both the first and second half of the semester," notes the Dean of Business, Continuing Education and Customized Training, Rosie Mortenson. "Basically, students can complete courses in half the standard time, and at half the standard tuition-for Minnesotans who are unemployed." Rosie Mortenson
Rosie Mortenson, Anoka-Ramsey Community College's Dean of Business, Continuing Education and Customized Training believes the college's new half-semester Business courses offer a unique opportunity for those currently under- or unemployed, particularly when combined with the college's new half-price tuition initiative for unemployed.

The half-priced program Mortenson refers to is Anoka-Ramsey Community College's recent initiative that provides a 50% tuition grant to those who qualify for unemployment. People who enroll in any open credit and non-credit course at Anoka-Ramsey for the 2009 spring semester, including one or more of the eight-week business courses (see below) that are still open, will save 50% on tuition.
