North Shore Community College is launching two new programs for the Fall 2012 semester: The Environmental Horticulture associate degree program and the Small Business Management-Entrepreneurship credit certificate program.
NSCC’s redesigned Environmental Horticulture associate degree program trains students for a wide range of employment opportunities in the ‘green’ industry, such as landscape and golf course management, nursery and garden center operation, tree care and related occupations. Students can also prepare for Massachusetts state arboriculture licensing, pesticide licensing and hydraulics licensing.
The Small Business Management-Entrepreneurship credit certificate program coursework will offer the knowledge and skills needed to start a new business venture, contribute to a growing enterprise, identify new business opportunities, and/or successfully operate a small company. Students will learn the components of running an entrepreneurial venture, including planning, using technology to interpret data for informed business decisions, and ways to effectively respond to dynamics of the small business environment.
NSCC’s Fall 2012 semester begins September 5. For information on any of NSCC’s credit programs of study, contact the Admissions Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 781-477-2107 or 978-762-4188.
