Sometime back I wrote on TutorVista, an online tutoring venture owned by Krishnan Ganesh. The story dealt on the supply side of a pent-up demand that a skilled entrepreneur like Ganesh is successfully exploiting.
TutorVista however doesn’t award a degree, which online institutes like Ellis College does. Ellis College, an accredited online college attached to the prestigious New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), offers over 50 degree programs on a wide range of subjects including Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Human Resources, Public Relations, Sociology and Telecommunications to name a few.
Ellis’ programs are tailor-made for busy professionals who need to advance their careers with specialized learning utilizing free times they can manage. True, many companies scoff at online degrees, which they believe lack the vigor of education as obtained in regular institutes.
But coupled with shortage of sufficiently skilled manpower and the need to enhance the knowledge level of existing employees, online education is no longer the pariah it once was when the concept had just begun.
That doesn’t take away the fact that online institutes like Ellis College have meanwhile vastly improved upon the quality of education they impart. What are those measures of superiority that sets apart Ellis College? Here they’re briefly:
- Ellis enables you to what it calls ‘learn by doing’ thereby acquiring skills that you can apply immediately.
- Its unique, interactive web-based online learning platform delivers an enriching and enjoyable experience through dynamic Flash exercises, videos and demonstrations.
- In a way similar to traditional offline institutes, Ellis offers a virtual campus that enables students and professors to maintain close interaction, and share ideas and mutual interests that are so important in today’s economy.
- For busy executives Ellis has short course terms that start every 3 weeks to enable them to finish quickly.
There are many advantages to learn and earn the much-cherished online degree from Ellis, an MBA for example from the School of Business & Technology. But you need not take this article on its face value.
As always, isn’t it better to know from the ‘horse’s mouth’! Here is a small banner from Ellis College. Just click on it to proceed. If you’re the one for whom the bell of an online MBA is tolling, Ellis College could very well be the answer.
