UNL Scholarships Help Food Processors Build Their Resumes
LINCOLN, Neb., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Food Processing Center announces two scholarship opportunities valued at $900 each to support and encourage the professional development of individuals working in the field of food processing. The scholarships will be applied toward UNL's online Food Processing Management Certificate Program, which addresses the urgent need for new supervisors and managers in an industry where droves of experienced managers will be retiring soon.
Designed to produce professionals with the business acumen and practical knowledge required to lead successful teams and companies, the program will increase expertise in food safety, QA/QC, employee safety, product development, processing, business growth strategies, and human resources. Participants will increase their level of understanding about their own jobs, and about roles outside their areas of expertise.
UNL has developed this online management certificate with the needs of companies and busy employees in mind. The classes are available anywhere in the world with internet access, and the engaging and instructive modules are accessible 24/7.
The scholarships will waive the $900 fee for module one of the three-module certificate program. The UNL Food Processing Center will award the scholarships based on relevant work experience, interest in a career change into the food processing industry, and professional recommendations. Scholarship applications must be received by January 23, 2013 6 p.m. CST. Recipients will be notified by February 1, 2013.
