From start ups to corporate careers, success begins with education

A Business Education

Are you interested in positioning yourself for a better entry-level opportunity, getting your bachelor’s degree in business, or perhaps vying for a promotion in your current job? Robeson Community College’s business programs can prepare you for a rewarding career in fields such as accounting, business management, computer networking, information systems, or medical office administration. At RCC, you have the option of immediately applying what you learn in the workplace and/or transferring to another college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

The World of Business

There’s a niche for practically everyone, so it’s up to you to decide which business career fits you best. If you think you might like to work for yourself, consider entrepreneurship or accounting. If your goal is to work for a large corporation, consider human resources, banking or management. “An RCC business degree prepares you for the full range of possibilities,” says William Locklear, Assistant Vice President of Public Service and Applied Technology Programs. “The marketplace is constantly changing. Our programs give students the flexible skill set they will need to adapt to these changes. This will be valuable to them whether they open a business in their local community or seek a position at a large corporation.”

Information Technology – Training for the Future

PHP, malware, DNS, java, CISSP, TCP… no, we are not speaking a foreign language – these are technology terms used to maintain and operate computers that transform how people connect, communicate, and collaborate. Beyond learning the “language of technology,” the career field of Information Technology (IT) is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are expected to add about 488,500 new jobs, from about 3.9 million jobs to about 4.4 million jobs from 2014 to 2024. Greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, more everyday items becoming connected to the Internet in what is commonly referred to as the “Internet of things,” and the continued demand for mobile computing are driving job growth.

The IT industry has grown beyond general technology professionals and now requires functional area experts. Robeson Community College’s programs are designed to prepare students for careers in computer technology or to transfer to four-year institutions to pursue baccalaureate degrees. The program provides the knowledge and skills to pursue successful careers in the areas of business, education, government, and other fields in which computers are routinely used for information.
