LOWELL - EI, C#, CRM or Emotional Intelligence, C Sharp and Customer Relationship Management. For professionals having difficulty navigating the ever-changing "alphabet soup" of corporate abbreviations and acronyms, but do not have the time to take a course, the University of Massachusetts Lowell's new Corporate Signature Seminar Series offers a welcomed alternative. Beginning this spring, more than a dozen one- to four-day seminars geared towards professionals covering four topic areas - management, information technology, security and creative arts/media - will be available.

 

"It is often difficult for working professionals, with family and work commitments, to dedicate a full semester to a course," says Dean Jacqueline Moloney, Division of Continuing Studies, Corporate and Distance Education, UMass Lowell. "The Seminar Series enables professionals to receive a quick burst of information in specialized topic areas."

 

Project Management, C #, Visual Basic.net, and Fundamentals of Investing are among the seminars being offered May through August at the University's Corporate Conference Center or the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in Bedford. With enough students, the seminars can be offered on-site at corporations.
