Online Business School and Certification Ohio
Posted: September 14, 2020
Starting a new career can sometimes seem like starting an adventure without a map. You’re full of anticipation for the outcome but also a little wary of the steps you’ll encounter along the way. Starting a new career doesn’t have to be that way, especially with Career Quest Learning Centers by your side.
Our accredited career college is here to help you navigate your way through this journey thanks to our tried and true training method.
What’s even better is that Ohio students can now enroll in our online business programs and enter the in-demand field of business in 8 to 15 months.
Why Earn a Certificate or Degree in Business at Our Online School?
Furthering your education in the ever-changing field of business is an easy step to landing an entry-level position that provides you with the stability you need. Business is one of the fields that’s always in need of new, bright minds. It’s not hard to imagine why when the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a 5-percent projected growth for business through 2029.1
Not only does earning a certificate or degree in business provide long-term stability within the business field, but it also sets you on the path to lifetime success in nearly any field. The information taught in these programs provides students with transferrable skills that can be used regardless of which career path they take.
Some of the transferrable skills you’ll learn through our program include:
- Time management
- Critical thinking
Our Online Business School Programs
At Career Quest, we understand no two students plan to follow the same career path or have the same career goals.
That’s why we offer two different business programs:
Whether you have some prior experience in business or you’re coming in to lay down the initial foundation, our programs provide you with the information needed to facilitate long-term career success. To help you decide which program most closely matches your needs, our admissions team will chat with you about your goals.
They can also provide you with a program selection assessment. This assessment gives you an in-depth look at our business programs to help you decide which is a good fit for you. During the assessment, one of our admissions counselors will talk about the strengths and the challenges of each program. This way, you’ll know what to expect.
What to Expect: Courses Offered in Both Online Business Programs
Regardless of which business program you choose, you’ll gain the necessary information needed to excel in an entry-level business position. Both programs focus on the common technology and software used in a business environment, how to communicate with co-workers, and the fundamentals of succeeding in the business field.
Both programs offer courses, such as:
- Intro to Computers
- Business Fundamentals
- Business Communication
- Microsoft Office
- Desktop Presentations
- Project Management
Administrative Assistant Program: Career-Ready in 8 Months
When you enroll in our administrative assistant program, you’re ready to start your new career in a handful of months. This is possible because our certificate programs require no general education classes. All classes in this program directly relate to the field of business.
After completing this program, some potential entry-level jobs for administrative assistants include:
- Accounts payable & receivable
- Sales associate
- Executive assistant
- Human resource assistant
Our administrative assistant certificate program also provides students with an externship opportunity. These externships are with one of our career partners—a local business who has joined forces with us. This externship provides real-world, hands-on work experience prior to graduating.
Externships also look great on a resumé and act as a great networking opportunity!
Business Administration (AAS) Program: Earn an Online Business Degree in 15 Months
Those who want to further their education beyond the administrative assistant certificate can enroll in our business administration (AAS) program. This applied associate degree requires an extra 7 months of career training in addition to the 8-month administrative assistant program.
In this program, you’ll take the fundamentals of business and build off that with additional courses, such as:
- Principles of Marketing
- Managerial Strategies
- Human Resource Management
- Accounting Essentials
