Cooperative Education provides practical career-related work experience through a program used nationally in colleges and universities to apply classroom knowledge and to develop job competencies. Full-time or part-time work in private and public sectors of the business, government, and industrial communities is utilized for this program. The number of credits earned depends upon the number of hours spent at the job station during the semester.
The Business Education Department is rolling out a trio of certificates tailored to accounting and entrepreneurship. The three certificates of completion are the Accounting Assistant, Accounting Office Assistant, and Entrepreneurship. These certificates are designed to immerse students of an accounting and entrepreneurial mindset and get them workforce ready in a short period of time. Classes are compressed into eight-week modules, and each certificate can be completed in as little as 24 weeks. All classes are conducted in an online learning environment, are collaborative, and intense. Classes will range from Sales and Marketing (SMKT 150), to Quickbooks (ACC 128), to Business Law (BLAW 200), to Cooperative Education (BUSN 193V), just to name a few. These are programs that are workforce-based and follow current and future hiring trends as it relates to skills aspired by employers on Kaua'i and abroad.
