Drexel University Introduces Gaming and Casino Operations Certificate

College students are no stranger to card games and poker nights, but rarely is it encouraged among college administrators as a viable career path... until now! According to Poker News Daily, Drexel University's Goodwin College of Professional Studies is adding a Gaming and Casino Operations Certificate program to its fall semester schedule.

The program will be offered in both an undergraduate and a graduate format, both of them available exclusively as online degrees. According to the article, the undergraduate version is an 18-credit program that will focus on technical and managerial functions relating to the gaming and casino industry, and is "designed for individuals who wish to operate or manage the dynamics of gaming enterprises." Lessons are set to cover the basics of hospitality management, plus topics like gaming industry legislation, gaming information systems, and other current issues affecting the industry. The coursework associated with this certificate program could be transferred as credit towards any bachelor degree program at Drexel.

Meanwhile, the graduate form of the program is six-courses long, designed with "part-time students" in mind. With a similar focus as the undergraduate program, it will cover many of the same topics, plus lessons in casino marketing and financial analysis. Also much like the undergraduate program, courses for the graduate certificate are able to be used toward Drexel's graduate level hospitality management degrees.

The fact that the two online programs are light on real estate doesn't mean that they're light on quality. Dr. Kenneth Hartman, Academic Director for Drexel University Online, says, "We're very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format. All of our online programs, including our online Graduate Certificate in Gaming and Casino Operations, are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses."

Have you put all your chips in a poker future? Is a pai gow table in your cards? This new program could be the perfect opportunity.
