NUCO offers BA in entrepreneurship

By CB Online Staff

National University College announced Friday the addition of a new online associate degree in business administration with a major in entrepreneurship.

Like the other degree programs offered through the online division, the new BA major will be taught in Spanish.

The associate degree program provides students with administrative and managerial training with a focus on the entrepreneurial skills needed to plan, implement, develop and operate their own businesses in today’s changing economy.

Along with the associate degree major in entrepreneurship, National University College’s online division (NUCO) offers students throughout the United States the opportunity to earn associate, bachelor and master degrees fully online and in Spanish with areas of emphasis including business administration, criminal justice, information technology and education through its competitively priced, accredited programs.

New classes start every seven weeks, with flexible schedules designed to fit the busy lifestyles of adult learners.

“As the Hispanic population grows rapidly across the country - the rate at which Latinos are opening their own businesses is even greater,’’ said Jonathan B. Morris, senior vice president of National University College’s online division. “Hispanic entrepreneurship rose more than 43 percent in the last Census count.”

“We’re pleased to offer students a major that prepares them for the demands of the emerging economy and fulfills the interest students have shown in business creation and operations,” Morris added.
