Working with the region’s top employers, CSM created this new program to offer the skills and knowledge needed in today’s business environment.
“The dynamics in business today require our students to possess skills that will equip them for success in an environment that continues to change exponentially,” said Jean Bartman, partner/managing director with RSM McGladrey, Inc.
“I believe the ‘Analytics and Strategic Communications’ Business Degree at CSM will give graduates a competitive edge as the business community seeks employees with above average analytical, communication and leadership skills.”
CSM Business, a degree in Analytics and Strategic Communication, aims to develop skills in critical thinking, problem solving using quantitative and qualitative analysis and communication for the business environment. Using real-world applications, students will learn from today’s business leaders through hands-on experience via job shadowing, internships and business plans.
“The progressive course sequence and engaged advising of this program promotes in-depth, reflective decision making and career exploration,” said Dr. Donna Ehrlich, director of the program. “From the very first semester, students immerse themselves in a learning environment focused on building their expertise and real world experience.”
Courses in the new business program will begin with the fall 2011 semester, and students already enrolled in the business program at CSM will be able to transition into the new track.
