Western Wisconsin Technical College-Independence Campus has developed programs that will allow participants to earn an associate’s degree while continuing to work full- or part-time. An information session about three of the programs will be held Wednesday,
June 29, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at WWTC’s Independence Campus. The public is invited to attend this free event.

The three programs that will be discussed include Accounting After Hours, Human Resources-Business Administration, and Supervisory Management.

The Accounting After Hours program provides students with the foundation in theory and practice for entry-level positions as accountants. Courses are offered one evening per week as a cohort group – meaning students will attend classes with the same team from start to finish. Classes will meet on Wednesday nights at the Independence Campus beginning this fall.

The Human Resources-Business Administration program covers the seven key areas of human resources: safety, employment law, training, HR management, compensation administration, international human resources, and staffing. This cohort group meets Tuesday nights beginning Spring 2006 at the Independence Campus. Some preliminary courses may also be taken this fall.

The Supervisory Management program is designed for people interested in acquiring or improving managerial or supervisory skills with a business emphasis. The cohort group meets for accelerated courses at the La Crosse Campus on Thursday nights. This program can also be completed through online courses. Both options are available in the fall.
