MBA Without Bachelors: What You Need To Know #mba #without #bachelors

Getting An MBA Without A Bachelor s Degree

Is it possible to get into an MBA program without a bachelor’s degree? While many schools have strict admission policies, some, including the prestigious University of Chicago, will consider MBA candidates without a bachelor’s degree.

A mid-career IT professional is looking to get into management, but without a bachelor’s degree, an MBA seems out of reach. What he doesn’t know is that today some MBA programs will consider and accept candidates who can demonstrate the right skills and experience (along with high GMAT scores). If MBA isn’t an option, our correspondent has plenty of senior-level certifications to choose from in the project management, IT governance and information security arena. In either case, both paths prove to be a better option than going back to finish a long-lapsed bachelor’s degree.

You have enough experience and certifications under your belt that I’m pretty sure that going back to finish your bachelor’s is neither an attractive nor a sufficiently valuable option at your stage of career to be worth undertaking. Given that you’re looking for a transition to information security and management, however, you may want to consider going after an MBA. Some programs will accept hours toward a bachelor’s combined with on-the-job experience and professional certifications in lieu of a bachelor’s degree, so that option may not be as far-fetched as it sounds upon first audition.

For example, University of Chicago will consider candidates for their MBA program without a bachelor’s degree who work full-time and have an impressive professional track record (along with a completed GMAT). Other universities will consider candidates without a bachelor’s who have substantial management experience, professional certifications, or other worthy credentials, all on a case by case basis. Make sure that you’re looking at MBA programs that are accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). AACSB does allow some MBA programs to make exceptions, including accepting students who don’t have a bachelor’s degree, under certain circumstances, so this might be an option for you.

An MBA from an accredited institution could be a big boost into management, if you’re willing to put in two to three years of concerted part-time effort to earn such a degree.

On the other hand, if you’re not interested in returning to school, you can also chase the management track through a series of senior-level certifications, including the Project Management Professional (PMP). and any of a variety of governance and business process related credentials. Some certifications to consider include the ITIL and CGEIT, or other IT governance related credentials that can help you advance your prospects of landing a management job. Take a look at our list of the Best IT Governance Certifications to learn more.

InfoSec credentials can also offer excellent career prospects, especially if combined with the preceding items from the governance and project management arena. Here again, you can check out our list of the Best Information Security Certifications for pointers to some good credentials. Given that you’ve already earned the Security+ and the old MCSA/MCSE Security elements, you may be ready to jump right onto CISSP or CISM, either or both of which I’d urge you to consider and possibly pursue.

Given a plan to up your visible skills and knowledge, and the time and effort necessary to train up for some new certifications, I’m confident that you’ll be able to steer your career in the management direction. And don’t discount the MBA as an option just because you don’t have your bachelor’s degree. Whether now or in the future, an MBA degree might be the right ticket to get you to the position you want to be in.

Best wishes for your continued career development plans and activities. Thanks again for submitting your questionnaire information; hopefully, the answers will help guide you toward some important decisions.

    Bachelors Degree Program in Sonography #bachelors #degree #in #ultrasound, #ultrasound #bachelors #degree,

    #

    Bachelors Degree Program in Sonography

    A Sonography Bachelor s Degree program is generally open to those who have already completed an associates degree or certificate program and who are currently certified as a Registered Diagnostic Sonographer through ARDMS or a similar professional association.

    Career advancement: It’s something most of us strive for as we seek a higher level of stability, challenge, fulfillment and salary. Completing a Bachelors Degree Program in Sonography enables just that – a move up the professional ladder from sonographer to director of an ultrasound department, consultant, an educator of diagnostic medical sonography or other prestigious positions.

    If you are thinking of going to medical school down the road, then a four year degree in ultrasound would also be an ideal educational foundation. (Note: Admission requirements vary from school to school. For example completion of any two-year allied health program may suffice or in some cases you can start your Bachelor of Science from scratch, rather than transferring credits from a previous associates/certificate program).

    Advanced Placement Bachelors Programs in Ultrasound

    An Advanced Placement Bachelor’s of Diagnostic Medical Sonography is an educational option that allows you to further specialize as a Sonographer or ultrasound technician. In many cases, fulfilling a Bachelors Degree in Sonography involves transferring your credits from a two-year Associates or certificate program plus completing professional credits specific to the profession of sonography. Such a degree is referred to as a “bachelor’s completion program”.

    While pre-requisites for admissions into an ultrasound degree school vary, generally to be accepted into a Bachelors program, you must have already completed a two-year allied health program in areas such as sonography, radiation therapy or nuclear medicine technology and be a practicing Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. Again, not all four year degree in ultrasound programs require this; some schools allow you to complete pre-professional courses at the beginning of your undergraduate degree. But for an Advanced Placement Bachelors Degree in Ultrasound, the emphasis is on professional development for existing sonographers and ultrasound technicians.

    Coursework delves into biology, physics, lab equipment, medical terminology and patient interaction specially tailored to the field of ultrasound. Many Bachelor’s Degrees in Ultrasound programs offer students the opportunity to specialize in a particular area of diagnostic medical sonography. such as vascular, echocardiography or general (abdominal, obstetrics and gynecology). Usually an Ultrasound Bachelors degree will include clinical or internship experiences, but for an Advanced Placement program this may not be required due to previous work experience.

    FAQs

    Should I pursue an Associates or a Bachelors degree in ultrasound?

    If you would like to remain as an entry-level sonographer, then an ultrasound associates degree will suffice. If you wish to continuously engage in professional development and further specialize then you may wish to pursue a Bachelors degree in Ultrasound. Also if you plan to go on to medical school, then a bachelor s degree is a credible, pre-med option.

    What jobs will I qualify for with a Bachelors degree?

    An Ultrasound Bachelors degree coupled with several years work experience can lead to significant career advancements. The ARDMS describes this professional progression: “A sonographer with 3-5 years of experience can become lead sonographer or director of an ultrasound department. There are also opportunities in consulting, sales, equipment manufacturing, imaging administration and education”. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the demand for diagnostic medical sonographers will continue to grow by 46% through to 2022. This job growth, which is faster than average, also equates to more high-level positions within the ultrasound field.

    Can I pursue a Bachelors degree in Ultrasound while working?

    Yes in many cases you can. If you are already a registered sonographer, some schools offer bachelor completion courses completely online since you would already have the clinical and lab experience from your vocation and prior education. Other schools offer flexible course schedules during the evenings and weekends.

    Will a Bachelors degree make me more competitive in the job market or affect my salary?

    Yes. Completing a program that equates to a four year degree in ultrasound will make you more specialized, qualified and more competitive for both entry-level and advanced sonographer positions. In 2015, the median salary for diagnostic medical sonographers was $68,970 per year, according to the BLS. However, the top 10% of sonographers made more than $97,000 annually. By upgrading your education, experience and job title, you can strive to become a part of this top 10%.

    Online Environmental Engineering Bachelors Degree Programs

    Essential Information

    Due to the hands-on nature of the field of environmental engineering, fully online programs are rare. While students can complete some of the courses online, the lab component of the program is typically required to be completed on campus; however, this can be done during the summer semester. Students may also be required to complete proctored exams. Additionally, since professional engineering licensure is recommended for environmental engineers, students will want to look for online programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).

    To become licensed as a professional engineer, ABET-accredited bachelor’s holders must pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, complete relevant work experience (typically about four years) and pass the Professional Engineering exam. To maintain licensure, environmental engineers must complete continuing education requirements.

    Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Engineering

    Students enrolled in undergraduate environmental engineering programs learn how to apply engineering strategies to manage environmental resources, such as water, air, land and soil. Such programs focus strongly on the sciences, with students delving deeply into chemistry, physics and biology. Students may also learn concepts in waste management, urban planning and pollution control. Graduates learn to interpret data related to environmental engineering, as well as to design and conduct their own experiments.

    Program Information and Requirements

    Online bachelor’s degree programs in environmental engineering typically take 4-6 years to complete. Because undergraduate engineering classes often require lab components, few environmental engineering programs are offered completely online. Some programs may offer all classroom component courses online, and only require students to attend on-campus lab component courses.

    List of Common Environmental Engineering Courses

    Environmental engineering courses teach students engineering design and how to use computer-aided design programs, such as AutoCAD, to communicate ideas. Students also receive a strong background in physics and analytical skills.

    Statistics

    Students learn the basics of statistics and probability. They learn to recognize and interpret correlations, test hypotheses and apply probability distribution functions.

    Civil Engineering

    Students typically learn the history, basic concepts and important developments of civil engineering. They may apply this knowledge by coming up with their own designs and communicating their ideas through computer software applications.

    Statics

    This mechanics course teaches students how forces interact with static objects. Students learn how to solve equilibrium equations, how to analyze and create their own free body diagrams and how to apply the concepts of statics to engineering.

    Dynamics

    This mechanics course focuses on moving bodies and how forces interact with these bodies. Students use calculus to analyze motion and apply their findings to real-life engineering situations.

    Transportation Engineering

    This course teaches students how to analyze and design transportation systems. Topics covered include pavement design, traffic forecasting and transportation planning. Mathematical models are used in the analysis and improvement of transportation systems.

    Career Information

    A four-year degree in environmental engineering prepares graduates to take on most entry-level jobs in environmental engineering. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS, www.bls.gov ) expected environmental engineering jobs to increase about 12% during the 2014-2024 decade. Per the BLS, the average environmental engineering salary was $88,040 in 2015.

    Continuing Education Information

    Students who wish to pursue higher education in environmental engineering after earning their bachelor’s degree may decide to enroll in a graduate certificate program, or in a master’s degree program. Unlike bachelor’s degree programs, some graduate programs in environmental engineering are offered fully online. Students who choose to enroll in a certificate program may later be able to apply those courses toward earning a master’s degree.

    Fully online bachelor’s degree programs in environmental engineering are rare, but are more common in a hybrid format with an on-campus lab component as students study topics like dynamics, civil engineering and statistics. Graduates of these programs can work in entry-level positions in environmental engineering, or may choose to pursue a graduate degree or certificate.

    Student Resources

    Why Major in Criminal Justice?

    The criminal justice degree program provides a combined training and criminal justice education package to prepare men and women for a professional career in the criminal justice system.

    Acceptance into the criminal justice bachelor degree program (junior/senior level) is on a competitive basis, as space permits.

    The criminal justice degree program provides two primary entry points: (1) to accommodate criminal justice students who wish to complete all four years at Ferris; and (2) college criminal justice students who transfer into the Ferris State criminal justice degree program with an associate degree criminal justice or its equivalent.

    Criminal Justice College Graduates Get Great Jobs

    The criminal justice degree program at Ferris State has three options: law enforcement specialist; criminal justice corrections; or criminal justice generalist. Depending upon the criminal justice major or cj program option chosen, Criminal Justice degree students study criminal justice subjects such as administration of police units, police laboratory techniques, collection of evidence, the role of police in forming community opinion, cause and prevention of juvenile delinquency, criminal justice theory and practice of handling convicted law violators, probation and parole, criminal justice processes and problems, crime control policy, and the role of law enforcement in American society.

    During the summer internship between the junior and senior years, the Criminal Justice degree students are assigned to a cooperating criminal justice agency for practical experience in a criminal justice internship program.

    Bachelor’s Degree Criminal Justice Admission Requirements

    College students who major in criminal justice by enrolling in the criminal justice degree program prior to the junior level enroll in the Pre-Criminal Justice curriculum. Completion of the Pre-Criminal Justice degree program does not guarantee acceptance into the criminal justice bachelor degree program. The bachelors degree in Criminal Justice is awarded for successful completion of 128-134 semester credit hours of coursework. These criminal justice degree credit hours are a combination of the 63-64 credit hours as required in the first two years as a criminal justice major (or an equivalent from another college) and the 64-67 semester credit hours required in the junior and senior years at Ferris State. Graduation from the college criminal justice degree program requires a minimum 2.5 GPA for the law enforcement specialist option. Graduation from the criminal justice degree in the criminal justice corrections and generalist options requires a minimum 2.0 GPA.

    College Degree Criminal Justice Graduation Requirements

    Graduates from the Criminal Justice degree program must complete all of Ferris State general education requirements as outlined in the General Education section of the criminal justice course catalog, and have an ACT math sub score of 24, or complete MATH 115 or pass the Math proficiency exam.

    Social Work

    Welcome to the

    Department of Social Work

    The Department of Social Work includes two programs, the Bachelor of Social Work Program (BSW) and the Master of Social Work Program (MSW). The BSW program prepares students to be professional social workers that are able to work in multiple settings with diverse populations experiencing a variety of issues. The BSW degree is an outstanding professional degree that enables graduates to work within many areas of the human service delivery system. The MSW degree is considered the “terminal” practice degree within the profession. Despite the need for all professionals to be life-long learners, graduates from the MSW program will need no additional formal education in terms of working with client groups and organizations in a multitude of settings. In addition to providing preparation for direct services, the MSW degree is also an excellent degree to prepare for supervisory and management positions within human service agencies.

    The Department of Social Work continues to experience growth in terms of students, faculty, and programs. The BSW program is a thriving program with over 300 students. The BSW program has been continuously accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) since 1978. The BSW program is offered in Bowling Green, Elizabethtown, Owensboro, and Glasgow! The MSW program enrolls approximately 120 graduate students and received initial accreditation from the CSWE in 2006. Our MSW program offers a unique concentration: advanced direct practice in rural settings. Currently, the MSW program can be completed in Bowling Green as well as an online cohort. Both programs were reaccredited by the CSWE in February, 2010.

    The department includes 16 full-time faculty, three faculty members on transitional retirement, two professional staff, four office associates, and four graduate assistants. Significant departmental projects include the WKU Training Resource Center (TRC), the Public Child Welfare Certification Program (PCWCP), the Credit for Learning Project (CFL), and the MSW Cohort Studies Initiative.

    Using financial aid is a personal decision. When making this decision, you should know that a degree is a great investment in yourself that will pay for itself many times over.

A master s degree typically has a similar impact on your wallet. You should definitely consider federal financial aid if it means the difference between getting your degree or not.
