By HILARY STANLEY-LORCHMAN, Associated PressAUSTIN (AP) The Texas A&M-AUSTRALIA Marketing Certification program is trying to expand beyond its traditional focus on marketing to become more accredited for online marketing.
A few years ago, the Texas A.&M marketing certification program became the first in the country to allow online courses to be offered as accredited marketing.
The program is one of a handful of accredited marketing programs nationwide.
The Texas Board of Regents says it has approved 1,200 online marketing courses.
The online program, known as the online MBA program, is part of the Texas Career and Technical Education Council (TCTE).TCTE president Jeff Troup says the online program was established to increase the number of Texas college graduates that go into the real estate industry.
The board has not yet determined if it will expand the program.
The Texas A & M marketing certification is a three-year program that allows students to learn from industry leaders and meet the demands of a corporate marketer.
It was first created in 2010.
It’s a tough sell.
A study done last year by the University of Texas-Arlington found that just 7 percent of the students that took the online classes actually graduated.
Students are often in the first years of the program, but they are in for the long haul, Troup said.
“It’s very difficult to get accreditation for these courses, and there are a lot of them that are in a bad position,” Troup told the Associated Press.
“You can’t afford to be a first-year, and then you’re a second-year and you’re not accrediting.”
The online MBA is also not accredited by the American Council of Schools and Colleges (ACSC), which certifies the program in the U.S.
The program has grown from just 30 students to over 1,000 students in less than a year.
The current students are the second generation to take the online course, and they will graduate in May 2019.
“The program is in great shape.
We’re working to expand the scope of our online MBA to include courses offered by other institutions, and we’re doing that by partnering with other educational institutions,” said Troup.
The online program also provides courses in real estate that are not accredited.
The students are working to improve the curriculum to be accredited, Tester said.
Troup says there is no shortage of opportunities for students to go into real estate.
The number of graduates from the online business MBA program has nearly doubled in the past few years, to nearly 6,000.
The number of students has increased by nearly 20 percent since the program began.
The first two years of training for students are free.
The third year is $1,000 for the first year, and $3,000 the second year.
Students who do not complete the course are required to take courses that include a portfolio management course, or one that takes them through an accounting and finance course.
Tester says the program has become popular with new students, but he says that will change once the program becomes more accreditable.
“We’re really looking to get students to think about it and really look at it as an opportunity to earn some credibility in the field,” Tester told the AP.
“There’s a lot that goes into it.”
