Take the Journey

Take a moment to think about what you wanted to do with your life. Now, think about your current situation. Are your past thoughts about your present life in sync? What does it all mean for your future?

I didn’t know that someday I’d be the dean of KSU’s Continuing Education. There were many factors along the way – such as people I met and education and training I received – that set me on a path to where I am today.

Alejandra Menacho spent time in the trade show industry but wanted to advance her career. Project management was at the top of her list. Her brother and niece had ties to KSU, so she naturally explored options at the university.

That’s where we came in. Our Project Management certificate program was key in Alejandra’s goal. She successfully completed our 3-month course and earned her Project Management Professional certification six weeks later.

These three letters – PMP – behind her name have global recognition and respect. Her employer understood the importance of this credential and lent financial support. Now, Alejandra is training for the project manager position and has her eyes set on another career-boosting trio – MBA. Read more about Alejandra on our blog.

As you continue to focus on your future, think about your own network and the possibilities that exist for you. Does your employer offer educational vouchers? Have you explored CobbWorks and Georgia Department of Labor’s career resources? Are you a KSU alum who is eligible for continuing education discounts?

With 50+ professional certificate programs, take advantage of the many opportunities to make the connection to your future goals. Alejandra did it, and so can you. Turn the page, keep reading, and let’s get started.

Be Your Own Boss

Do you want a seat at the table, or do you want to own the tables, chairs, room and building? Entrepreneurship can create a world of opportunity. It is undoubtedly hard work but it can ultimately be very rewarding. Knowledge is power, and our featured student personifies this.

David Drake owns his own business, reOneSpot.com. His website serves as a resource for real estate agents. David knew the site was useful, but he wanted to enhance it. With the rapid pace of technology, this business owner knew his site needed to be more than useful – it needed to be on the cutting edge.

“Everything we are doing now is online and in the cloud,” he said. “If you’re not familiar with how this stuff works, you’re at the will of other people.”

Our Web Design & Development program was David’s solution. He was able to combine his experience in graphic design with his affinity for technology. Another appeal was the instructors who actively work in the web design and development field.

“For less than the cost of paying someone to build a website, I could pay for myself to attend class and learn it quicker,” David said. “The return on investment was huge.” Since completing the program, David has been able to enhance marketing for his business through a new-and-improved site. He’s also incorporated email marketing campaigns and tracks his success through Google Analytics. Read more about David’s path to success on our blog.

Are you ready to call the shots? Let us help you get started. Meeting & Event Management, Culinary Apprenticeship, Personal Financial Planner – these are among our many certificate programs that could be a catalyst for your path to entrepreneurship. Are you ready to take that first step?
