Structure & Design of Programs
The programs of study at National College are career-oriented. Students enrolled in a diploma program take a number of entry-level courses which cultivate the skills they need to begin their careers. Students in the associate degree programs take a number of program-specific courses that would normally be offered only as upper-level classes at other institutions. These classes ensure that associate degree graduates are highly competitive job candidates, prepared to excel in their chosen fields. The baccalaureate programs in accounting and management build on the associate degree programs through additional, program-specific courses. This provides an in-depth, well-rounded, and rigorous educational experience, enabling our graduates to compete in the global economy.
The Master of Business Administration program provides Bachelorís degree holders the opportunity to gain graduate-level training and expertise in numerous areas of management. The Masterís program utilizes a cross-functional approach to provide the foundational knowledge necessary for managerial efficiency and leadership in both private and public job markets.
Students enrolled in a program are considered to be concurrently enrolled in any lesser, included programs. Upon completion of the requirements of such a program, they are entitled to the appropriate certificate, diploma, or degree.
