Western Wisconsin Technical College (WWTC) has developed a Supervisory Management program that will allow participants to earn an associate’s degree while continuing to work full-time. An information session about the program will be held Thursday, July 21, 2005 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in Room 102 of WWTC’s Business Education Building, 405 8th St. N., La Crosse. The public is invited to attend this free event.

The Supervisory Management program is designed for people interested in acquiring or improving managerial or supervisory skills with a business emphasis. Today’s requirements of technical expertise and high productivity are addressed in this program. Skills such as human relations, labor relations, and management principles are developed. Students learn about diverse topics, including safety, diversity, project management, team building, quality, legal issues for supervisors, and leadership.

There are two options for completing the program: accelerated learning and online learning. The accelerated learning program will meet one evening per week in a cohort group format, which means the students will attend classes with the same team from start to finish. The next group starts Sept. 1 and will meet on Thursday nights. The online learning program will be completed through online courses with instructors from the La Crosse area. Those classes begin Monday, Aug. 29.
