Online Bussiness Administraion Classes Can Enhance You Career

By Rex Kingman

If you’re a parent or otherwise non-tradtional student who is also working a full- the-college-prostime job, taking online business administration classes might be preferable to attending traditional college classes. Earning your degree online can be a good way to advance your career, but keep in mind that finding the right program is often a tricky task. There are a number of factors that must be considered before you begin your studies.

Obtaining an online degree in business administration can mean earning an associates degree, a bachelors degree, or a masters degree. If you have taken college courses  in the past, you may be able to transfer some of your credits to reduce the
amount of time it takes to complete your degree. Some programs also have accelerated learning options, but the fast pace of the coursework can be challenging if you have many other personal commitments to juggle as well.

Be careful when choosing to enroll in an online business administration degree program that is not affiliated with a traditional brick and mortar college. While online learning is becoming increasingly popular, many people still see an online
degree as a low grade education.

Once you begin taking classes to obtain an online business administration degree, it’s very crucial that you stay on a consistent schedule as much as possible. While taking online business administration classes is convenient, the flexible format of online learning also makes it very easy to fall behind in your work. If you don’t reserve time to study every week and ask for help if you’re having trouble understanding key concepts, it’s going to be difficult to earn the grades needed
to get your online business administration degree.

Choices: “College” Or “Entrepreneurship”?

By Antonio Newell

One of the most thought about choices, one of the least made decisions, the-college-prosbased on desire. I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying that “You have to get a college degree or you’ll be working at McDonald’s.” Or the infamous, “If you don’t want to be a Wal-Mart Door Greeter, you better go to college.”

There are more options in life than “college.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that college is the wrong way to go. What I’m saying is that you should not have your perception skewed by those allegations. “School” isn’t for everyone. It’s really not. I’m a strong believer in Knowledge and Learning. However, school may not be the place where it happens. “School” doesn’t teach you how to get ahead in this world. “School” doesn’t instruct you on how to become a millionaire. Let me retract that statement. “US School”s don’t teach you how to become a millionaire. I’ve attended different schools (mostly to see what they could teach me). And you know what? They all teach the same thing, the SAME thing. What’s the “thing,” you ask? You have to work FOR somebody.

America is known in other nations as the “Land of the Free” the “Land of Opportunity.” Other nations know that you can be any and whoever you want to be in America. But do “we” know it? Do WE know we can own our own business? Do we know we can be our own boss? We don’t have to work for a living but work for a giving?. .that we can be “Lenders” and not “Borrowers”? Most of us “U.S. Citizens” (Nationally Born) don’t realize it. Probably because we’ve heard it all our lives; now it just goes in one ear and out the other.

In schools in other nations, they’re taught to own their own businesses. That they can be their own bosses in America. But in OUR educational system, that’s not the case. We are taught to get out. .get a JOB. .and work for a living. “Going back to school” is being pressed more in the media today, than ever before. Why? Is it because people are sick of their jobs and want to do better? Is it because schools want to help you become a better person? I’m willing to bet everything I have that those aren’t the cases. “Education” is a multi-billion dollar industry. The schools know that people are sick and tired of their jobs, so they’re pushing “Go Back To School” in your face. (Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Steve Jobs and the like either dropped out of college or never went, and look at where they’re positioned in the economy. If they would suddenly halt their businesses, the U.S.’s economy would probably go into a mudslide.) I’m pushing that you should “Work For Yourself!” Like I said, I’m big on Knowledge and Learning. . .but “school” may not be the place to do it, if you want to get ahead. Why do you think big name schools’ admission and board are so costly? Is it because they only want the most “prestigious”? Ha!

“College dropout.” What’s on their mind? Money loss. That’s it! The admission is set so high because they know that only the “best of the best” will come. And with that being said, there won’t be nearly the dropout rate; which also means, they’ll continue to get their money. $70,000/yr for the same education you would get at a State University or College for (1/16) of the cost. The teachers at those institutions don’t care more or less. They’re getting paid, and guess by whom. You! You’re
either paying an arm and a leg for the “do this to make sure you get The job.” Or you’re paying a little for the “here, now go get A job.”

At all the schools I’ve been, I’ve not seen more than 4-5 classes on owning a business. The last school I attended only had one, “Entrepreneurship.” I’m like, “What the heck?!” The educational system is just one big business. There was a school in Atlanta that has or was about to be closed because it couldn’t pay its water bill! You know why? No students, defaulting on loans and such. No students means no money. No money means no profit. No profit means no business. And guess what. No business means no school. Same education, different institution. It’s like buying bread at the grocery store. Same great bread brand, different prices.

I’ve found my institution though: Barnes & Noble and all other venues. You think I’m kidding? Go to one and visit the business section. See how much you can learn in just one day. So all in all, don’t think “college” is the only way to go. You can start your own business with ease. Heck, you can even start your own business while attending college. So when you graduate, you won’t be in some rundown apartment getting up at 5am to make it to work through crazy traffic. You’ll already be living well, and will have a “college degree” just to say, “I’ve been there, done that.” Invest in Yourself.

Book on a Career as a College Professor

By Howard E. Rubin, Ph.D.

There is no single definitive book on a career as a college professor. However, there is a the-college-pros15plethora of books on associated topics. These books can give you insights into teaching at the college level, they can provide you with the “best practices” to use while teaching, and can give you guidance on how to obtain academic jobs. Most of these books can be found at www.Amazon.com.

Everyone has a set of particular needs and weaknesses that must be overcome. Therefore, it is inappropriate and futile to make recommendations. Instead, you should take the time to determine the types of information you need and then search out books on these subjects. However, you should keep in mind that these books do not necessarily contain definitive information about the subject. They often are a compilation of the thoughts, ideas, and experiences of the Arthurs. Thus, it is imperative that you read the reviews about each book to determine the ones that may be the most helpful to you.

I love browsing college bookstores, especially those of large universities. I spend hours looking at the textbooks to see the types and levels of the courses being taught. Next, I go over to the books for education majors and look at them. There are often books available on how to teach in my field. I can always pick up a fewer pointers simply by browsing through these books. Then, I end up at the reference section and check out what books
are on-hand that may be of interest and value to me.

If you are looking for guidance, a viable supplement to reading books on a career as a college professor is to go to your local colleges and universities and talk to the their professors. Most of them will be happy to discuss their field with you. You will receive insights and advice that you might not otherwise have retrieved from your readings. Also, the guidance you receive from these professionals will be based on your unique local
conditions. This is a valuable advantage to merely reading books about teaching as a college professor.
