SUNY Ulster Hosting Two Virtual Open Houses

STONE RIDGE – Join Business department faculty on May 20 or June 9, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m., for a virtual info session to discuss the many business degrees, certificates, and micro-credentials offered at SUNY Ulster, and how they can boost career opportunities.

SUNY Ulster’s Business Department offers Associate Degrees in Accounting, Business Administration, and Business & Entrepreneurial Studies. These are two-year degrees appropriate for those looking to transfer to a four-year college to complete a Bachelor degree or for entry into the workforce.

For those looking for short-term opportunities to build skills, SUNY Ulster offers certificates and micro-credentials that boost your value to an employer. Certificates are offered in General Management, Entrepreneurship, Bookkeeping, and Administrative Office Skills. Micro-credentials are offered in Accounting Computer Skills, Customer Service, Leadership, and Small Business Management. Upon completion of a micro-credential, students are awarded a digital badge that can be added to a resume or LinkedIn page.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics cites that a business degree provides versatility – “no matter your interest, there’s likely a business angle to it.” A business degree or credential will provide a competitive edge when applying for jobs or a promotion compared to those who do not have a degree or who have a less marketable degree. The reason for this is that business degrees provide a variety of useful skills that can be used in any type of profession.

In addition, wages for many occupations that require business degrees are higher than those for all workers.

Registration is required for this event. For more information, contact Mindy Kole at
