Boomers go back to school
The Record    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Do you have a dream? Take a cue from Baby Boomers who have made learning a valuable tool for achieving their professional and personal goals. It was 20 years before Mark Ventola, now a sergeant with the North Brunswick Police Department, fulfilled a promise to his parents to return to college. In 1979, he left Indiana State University to realize his dream to become a police officer. His studies were put aside until 1999, when he resumed his college career, earning a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Caldwell College, followed by a master's in human resources training and development from Seton Hall University. He plans to add a doctorate in education after he retires this year from a rewarding career with the police force. More

Gulf News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Remember the days when you had to be physically present in the classroom to learn, and when blackboards and library cards were the norm? The internet has revolutionized the way we study and now it is very convenient for both employees and jobseekers to seek further education without abandoning their careers and homes. Aaron Bennett is one of those who has benefited from online education. The South African expatriate recently earned his MBA through the University of Liverpool in the U.K. while working as a consultant of The Gulf Recruitment Group in Dubai. Since it was a purely online course, Bennett was able to juggle between work and study. More
