TAMPA, Fla., May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In a move that promises to revolutionize the training and seminar business, the nation's top universities are combining their expertise and solid reputations with cutting-edge technology. The resulting online professional education programs grant unprecedented access to the brightest minds, and remove barriers to the most up-to-date and relevant business training. Details are available in the latest University Alliance catalog. Unlike traditional hotel seminars that lack depth of content, the new online certificate programs offered by Villanova University, Tulane University, the University of Notre Dame and Thunderbird School of Global Management feature the nation's foremost experts in a wide variety of business fields. Students have several weeks - not several hours - to read course materials, discuss key topics with professors and classmates, review streaming video lectures, and work on class assignments at their convenience, 24/7. And they can add the workbooks and CD-ROMs to their personal libraries to reference long after the program is over. "Our online programs combine rich tradition and academic excellence with state-of-the-art technology - a unique blend that enables professionals to access unmatched training wherever they live or work," noted Wayne Brantley, Senior Director of Online Professional Education for Villanova University. The schools collaborate with the University Alliance to transform their curricula into interactive online programs that students can complete from the comfort of their home or office.
