“You will meet great people from all walks of life looking for a new career.” -Carola Anderson, Certified Legal Interpreter
Carola Anderson brought her human resources degree to Las Vegas about ten years ago so she could work with her husband in the family business. As the years passed, she pondered a career change.
UNLV Continuing Education is kicking off 2020 with a revised (and vastly improved!) policy on staff and alumni discounts.
Beginning with spring 2020 classes UNLV staff will receive a standard 15 percent discount on professional development classes and 5 percent off personal enrichment classes. Alumni will receive 5 percent off both professional development and personal enrichment classes. In the past, discounts for staff and alumni were determined on an individual class basis; the new policy standardizes the discounts with very few exceptions.
The Spring 2020 course catalog was released online and sent in the mail this week, so now is a great time to take a peek at new offerings. UNLV’s Continuing Education staff has been working hard to develop new classes and certificates to help you get ahead at work or even launch a new career.
"The Lean Six Sigma program provided me just what I needed to get where I wanted to go professionally." -Natalie Knuth, General Manager
Natalie Knuth recently completed both UNLV’s Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt programs. Did she enroll in the courses in hopes of bettering her future at a Fortune 500 company? Was she striving to become a successful CEO or vice president? Did her past showcase a traditional business management career path? Not exactly. Natalie came to the Lean Six Sigma program at UNLV by way of her theater background.
My favorite part is taking what I learned and applying it to my job and becoming a better officer of the company. -Todd Transue, CFO for College Loan Corporation”
