NEW YORK (TIP): After successfully hosting a session with Fortune 500 companies in October, the Monroe College will be hosting three seminars on December 2, 3 and 4 to attract South Asians to their newly opened Queens branch for three courses. The three day-seminar will focus on courses in public health, business administration and criminal justice.

The reputed college has planned these seminars for international students, especially from Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Nepali communities in the US and also from South Asia. “The Queens Extension Site is focused on being a resource for busy adult professionals who live or work in Queens or the surrounding communities and want to take their career to the next level. The site offers a flexible, hybrid schedule of onsite and online, mainly graduate-level courses,” says Evan Jerome, Vice President and in-charge of developing the Queens branch. In the first seminar on December 2, participants will learn best practices, tips and success stories from an exclusive panel of professionals about Master’s in Public Health.

The second one – on December 3- would be a dialogue and discussion on the Master’s Degree in Business Administration. And finally on December 4, there will be a discussion on the Master’s of Science Degree in Criminal Justice. All the three sessions will be held between 5.30 pm and 7.30pm and will be followed by light dinner. Talking about the unique nature of the courses, Jerome said, “Monroe College prides itself on being student centered and that quality has been carried to the Queens site as well. Our class sizes are small so that students can get the one-on-one attention they need from the professors.

Our courses combine both the theoretical and practical aspects of the lectures. These courses also give students the opportunity to network with other professionals, since the graduate student population is made up of individuals with work experience looking to take their career to a higher level.” In the session on public health degree, professionals would focus on how holders of an advanced degree in public health can be found in employment sectors ranging from major hospitals and government agencies to academic institutions and charitable organizations.

The course is important because New York City’s healthcare and information technology sectors have high demand for middle-skill workers, commonly defined as people with more than a high school degree but less than a bachelor’s degree. There are over 25,000 job postings across positions in five healthcare occupation groupings that require a sub-baccalaureate credential. While the second seminar would focus on the MBA degree, the last seminar would be all about the Master’s of Criminal Justice degree and how to ascend to the leadership roles within the field.

This course is important as it would explain how the everpresent danger of terrorism and other forms of transnational crimes necessitates a closer collaboration among criminal justice agencies on all levels: federal, state, local and even international levels. In addition to talking about the courses, the seminar would also focus on the issue of financial support in the form of loans and scholarships. “Financial aid is offered. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for loans and/ or scholarships,” says Jerome. Though the campus is located in Queens, which is a hub of communities from South Asia, the courses are open to international students as well. “Monroe College accepts and welcomes international students.

We currently have relationships with high schools and college from over 70 different countries all around the world. We work to try and make students feel as though Monroe College is the Home away from Home,” says Jerome who will attend the seminars to explain the programs to young South Asians as well as to business executive for a continued education. The college also has plans in place to take care of the students’ post-education needs. “Monroe College’s Office of Career Advancement is available throughout a students’ educational and professional career to help guide the students.

The Office helps prepare student with resume writing workshops, interview preparation, job opportunity listings, among other things. We also hold two Career Fairs a year and invite companies throughout the community as well as larger corporations. Monroe also has a list of Corporate Partners who seek interns and employees from our pool of graduates. Monroe College equips students with the knowledge and life skills to continue moving forward after graduation,” says Jerome.
