Continuing Education for Professionals and Business Owners
  For years, successful businesses have been offering or paying for continuing education as a way to attract and retain employees.  Certain professionals--including those providing health care, real estate brokers, securities brokers, insurance agents, CPAs, and attorneys--are required by law to complete continuing education in order to renew their professional licenses.

Because of the proliferation of senior abuse, most states have enacted legislation that requires professionals who work with seniors to have completed approved programs before claiming to be a senior advisor or professional with expertise in providing advise to seniors.

MBA programs are available online, as are other programs.  If you're thinking about offering or paying for continuing education (CE) for your employees, or if you want to pursue continuing education on your own to advance your career, Business Week posted a good article on September 17th.

One of the best ways to stay ahead of your competition is to outperform them.  There's no better way to do precisely that than to know your business inside and out ... and to keep up with your marketplace, new technology, and the specific details of your industry.  Taking advantage of all the continuing education programs and courses that are offered--in classroom settings, through correspondence courses, and online--is one of the best investments you can make in your career and business.

  2. @ John I agree continuing education is important for professionals. Thunderbird School of Global Management has a newer business continuing education program that is a part of their executive education program. I’m looking into it as a way to further not only my education, but my career as well.
