12/13/02 - New "Reinhardt Advantage" at North Fulton Center Aimed Toward Adult Learners
For many working adults, earning a college degree is a time-consuming and intimidating prospect. In recent years, many colleges and universities have seen the need to create programs geared toward the working, adult student with flexible schedules and evening classes.

Students can finish the 48-hour program in approximately 20 months, and entry points occur in January, May and August.
Some courses offered are:
Organizational and Leadership Behavior
Marketing and Management
Diversity, Demographics and Social Changes and
Problem Solving for Organizational Leadership.
The classes will meet one night a week from 6-10:50 p.m. for eight-week sessions. Prospective students must have earned 60 credit hours and have a 2.50 grade-point average (GPA).
