Kellogg Community College this fall will begin offering an accelerated Weekend Business College allowing students to complete the College’s Business Management Certificate Program in just two semesters.
The program will be cohort-based outside the traditional Business Management Program model, meaning students will begin and end the Weekend Business College program with the same set of student peers.
Weekend Business College students will select one of two options for instruction depending on their schedules and their personal preferences: a hybrid option (which includes some face-to-face instruction and some online instruction) or a fully online option with all instruction offered remotely.
“This program is perfect for student learners with busy lives who would like to accomplish their academic goals in an expeditious manner,” KCC Business and Information Technology Director Bobby Beauchamp said. “We’re offering students a flexible, convenient opportunity to complete their Business Management Certificate with significant direction and support in under a year.”
Unlike the traditional Business Management Program courses, which run for up to 16 weeks per semester, Weekend Business College students will complete their courses in accelerated seven-week blocks, generally taking two classes per seven-week cycle.
The program will run for 14 weeks during the fall semester and 14 weeks during the spring semester. Students selecting the hybrid option will meet for class every other week in person on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. Students selecting the online option will receive instruction online.
A detailed course schedule for the hybrid and online cohort options is below.
“We are thrilled to offer this new Weekend Business College model to our students, as it provides a flexible and efficient way for them to complete the Business Management Certificate Program,” KCC Dean of Workforce Development Dr. Dennis Baskin said. “This program will not only help students achieve their academic goals in a timely manner, but it will also equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in the competitive business world.”
Each cohort has a limited number of seats available, so interested individuals are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to reserve their place.
For more information or to sign up for the program, contact the Admissions Office 269-965-4153 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who complete the Business Management Certificate may choose to continue their education to earn KCC’s Associate in Applied Science in Business Management degree. More information about the program can be found at kellogg.edu/business.
