Ivy League Comes to the Desktop: Online Degrees
eCornell has become a reality as Cornell University has developed a series of online training programs that result in certification.�� The training program consists of courses designed as continuing education for professionals or those entering the job market that want to study specific aspects of executive management.
These are twelve week courses divided into six two-week modules.�� They are divided into four categories: Leadership and Strategic Management; Project Leadership and Systems Design; Financial Management; Management Essentials; Human Resources; and Hospitality & Foodservice Management.
Financial Management has only one course of study.�� The other categories have a number of specific areas of study for which certificate programs have been developed. Under Leadership and Strategic Management, for instance, you will find available certificate programs in Executive Leadership, Change Leadership, Leading Management Teams, and Business Leadership Skills.
These training certificates are available to individuals, but are also being marketed as training options for businesses and corporate entities.�� eCornell is capitalizing on the allure of an Ivy League credential to extend its academic reach online.�� It is also fair to say, however, that the academic programs have been carefully developed by Cornell faculty and vetted by several education organizations.
Cornell has taken another significant step in its distance learning development by allowing its College of Engineering to offer an online degree program leading to a Master's of Engineering in Systems Engineering.�� It, too is being offered as a continuing education option - or at least, as an option for "the working professional."
There are admission requirements for this master's program that include previous courses in a number of math fields, test score minimums and letters of recommendation.�� Cornell is maintaining certain admission standards for its first online collegiate degree program that continue the Ivy League tradition of admitting well-prepared students.
