Adult and Extended Learning (AEL)
The School of Business at Oakland City University provides career-oriented programs and coursework at centers located throughout Indiana. Faculty at these centers teach high-quality coursework designed to combine actual work experiences of the student with course content and objectives. This process accelerates the in-class time investment, and reduces that investment by 1/3 to 1/2 of the traditional time. Out-of-class assignments in team projects, focused individual study, and individual projects serve to achieve the needed learning objectives in each course.
OCU has a variety of centers which are conveniently located. These sites now include Bedford, Evansville, Plainfield, Rockport, Oakland City, Muscatatuck, and Camp Atterbury. Courses and cohort groups also operate at many other locations throughout Indiana. Multiple centers make it possible for working adults from Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois to earn an associates, bachelors, or masters degrees. Depending upon the program, the courses will meet one time per week for either 5, 8, or 15 weeks.
Students can save more time and money by securing program credits through work experience and/or specialized training in their career area. The university also offers many fully online classes. This unique blend of curricula allows for degree completion in about 18 months, at a reasonable cost that is competitive with other colleges and universities in Indiana. The aspect of accelerated programming allows the student to complete the degree more quickly, and move forward in their career. This is important value-added.
If you are a working adult in a business-related career, this is a program concept you should consider! Give us a call, or e-mail, to talk with an admissions counselor.
