New Class Offerings at Cayuga
Liz McCormick, Associate Professor of Business and Computer Science in Fulton, said, starting fall 2011, the Business Department will offer a project management course on both Auburn and Fulton campuses. This new course was created to fulfill a current business need to prepare students for the workplace and provide professional development for current employees. Successful completion of a project gives a company a competitive edge, she said, so most employees will be involved in a project, whether as participants in the process or overseeing it. Their understanding of the project's integral pieces will enhance the likelihood of a positive outcome.
The knowledge obtained in an internship experience is valuable to students entering the work force or to students transferring to a four-year school. This course will provide an opportunity for qualified students to connect classroom learning with practical work experience. It is designed to help the student develop marketable skills and gain valuable contacts. Each student's internship process and completion includes learning objectives, job preparation instruction, a faculty/internship sponsor, and a site supervisor. Students will complete at least 100 hours of work experience during the semester and 20 classroom hours.
