APA Accredited Online Psychology Programs | Taking Notes


I want to earn an online PhD or a counseling master’s and change my career from a sales manager to a mental health counselor or therapist. What are the best online psychology schools for this goal?

Taking Notes for a Masters in Project Management Online
You’re interested in becoming a project manager – a career that’s held up well during the recession, with six-figure average salaries.

To enter this field, should you pursue a master’s in project management online? What about an MBA with an emphasis in project management or just a plain online management master’s?

Bill Haskins, director of the online master’s in project management programs at the University of Wisconsin at Platteville, believes a degree in project management can really help an applicant grab an employer’s eye.

“There are many, many hundreds of online MBA programs out there – degrees recognized in the business community, almost to the point where it doesn’t really get the employer’s attention any more,” he says.

“The project management degree sets the applicant apart from the rest of the pack. That’s important…You need something that will bring you to the top.”

Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science Online Degrees
These days there are almost TOO many choices for online Computer Science and IT degrees. Which tech-savvy degree should you choose? What’s the difference between a Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science major? IS there really any difference? If so, which one is best for which career paths?

If you’re having trouble choosing an IT degree path, start by asking yourself which of the following three career questions interests you most:

1. Why does the technology work?

2. How does the technology work?

3. What technology would work the best?

The question you find yourself most drawn to is a clue to which type of online degree you’d prefer when it comes to Computer Information Systems vs Computer Science.

Many of the online IT degrees offered today are related to Computer Science, Information Technology or Computer Information Systems. Each major shares much in common, but each also tends to focus on answering slightly different questions. These approaches translate, in turn, into different career paths.

Adding a concentration in IT or finance is a great way to differentiate yourself from more generic, "vanilla" business degrees.

Career counselors have always plugged "vanilla" business degrees as safe investments. But surveys say a generic business bachelor's is not the way to get the best business jobs and starting salaries. The best business jobs—and salaries—go to professionals who specialize in one of three majors: accounting, finance or IT and information systems. Earn an online bachelor's degree in business with one of these three concentrations and watch your career prospects—and salary level—soar.
 

“People in this kind of job market have their eyes open to skill sets, not just theoretical skills, but accounting, software ... things that have high value [to potential employers],” says Michael Jaeger, dean of the colleges of business and education at Eastern Oregon University. Jaeger oversees the online bachelor's degree in business program at EOU.
