May 15, 2006 — Denver, Colorado— From accounting to human resources, business administration to information systems management, today's hot careers demand exceptional business and technological savvy.
With today's opening of DeVry University's new Denver South location in the Denver Tech Center, career-minded Coloradans have a new higher education option to gain the skills necessary to succeed in a competitive job market.
Located at 6312 Fiddler's Green Circle in Greenwood Village, the new DeVry University location offers bachelor's degree programs in business administration, technical management and computer information systems. Graduate degree programs in business administration, accounting and financial management, human resource management, project management, information systems management, network and communication are offered through the university's Keller Graduate School of Management.
People looking to change, jump-start or advance their careers can choose accelerated programs to complete an undergraduate degree program in just three years or graduate degree programs in as little as 18 months.
“There is strong demand in Denver and throughout Colorado for undergraduate and graduate business and technology programs that offer convenience, flexibility and the opportunity to learn from faculty with industry experience,” said Cecil Horst, president of DeVry University/Colorado. “This is particularly true among working adults seeking opportunities to enhance their educational foundation or complete their college degrees to make themselves more marketable in today's economy”
Horst says DeVry University's degree programs are ideal for people who want to advance in their careers and increase their earnings potential. “Education has become a prerequisite for progressive careers,” he said. “Technological advances, demographic diversity and global competition have raised the bar for those who want to lead the way into today's workforce”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists business management, accounting, human resources and information systems management among the fastest growing professions over the next decade. These positions also fall within the top 25 percent of earnings for workers overall and most require a bachelor's degree or higher.
“The Denver Tech Center is one of the region's largest business hubs, with a tremendous demand for workers that have a solid education foundation,” said Horst. “With DeVry University's career-oriented, technology-grounded undergraduate and graduate degree programs, area graduates will be prepared to meet the continuing needs of local employers”
The Denver South location features spacious classrooms, a student resource center, two computer labs with wireless Internet access, a student lounge and a faculty resource center. The facility has the capacity to serve up to 500 students.
