We currently have over 400 graduates, each representing fifty different professional business/corporate areas. Since the inception of the program, we have strived to incorporate theory and research related to adult learning and cognition, melded with current and emerging practices and tools in technology. Graduate students experience the best practices in the field, reflecting innovative instructional strategies as well as assessment and evaluation methodologies. They develop skills in project manaU.S. World Best Online Program 2020 Badgegement, the Learning Management System (LMS), collaboration, written communication, technology-enabled media literacy, research, and critical thinking/problem-solving while learning to use the tools of technology to develop sound curricula.
