With fear over the spread of COVID-19 sweeping the nation, many people have been affected in one way or another. In the recent weeks with news changing daily, we have heard a lot from both our current and prospective students asking if financial aid will be impacted. In hopes of easing some nerves, we have asked Michelle Doss, a financial planner for the Johnson & Wales College of Online Education, about the most common questions she has been receiving in hopes of giving our students some clarity.
The Johnson & Wales University College of Online Education is pleased to announce our Winter Term dean's list for 2019-2020. Undergraduate students with a GPA of 3.40 or higher achieve dean's list status. Congratulations!
No matter which career field you’re in, a graduate degree can open the door to more opportunities for you and your future. Some managerial roles require candidates to have an advanced degree to apply, while in other fields an MBA or a master’s degree provides a competitive edge. To help you weigh your options, let’s take a look at the different types of graduate degrees and how they can help you reach your career goals.
Have you ever met people at work with whom you really got along well? Have you ever met people at work with whom you don’t? What causes these great differences? Too often, we are expecting others to be just like us. When they fail to meet our expectations, we decide we don’t like to work with them. It would be so much easier if the people we worked with just all behaved the same. It would be easier if they listened to what we wanted to tell them, acted in the ways we expected, and thought about things in the same ways we did. It would be easier — but it will never happen.
Since its start, Johnson & Wales College of Online Education has worked hard to bring our industry-renowned education to our students no matter where they're studying from. Hear from the College of Online Education's Vice President, Cindy Parker E.d.D., at where we stand today and where we're going next.
If you’ve ever thought about how you can make your work a happier place, you’ve got it all backward. According to Johnson & Wales organizational psychology professor and online instructor, Scott Lyons Ed.D., happiness at work is an effect of a greater cause. “I come from the school of thought that organizations can be misguided if they are searching for happiness rather than good health or a positive organizational culture,” Lyons said.
“This is the best place I ever worked! I love it here! I’m serious, the people here are awesome. It’s just a great environment,” said Harry Ryan Jr., online academic advisor at the JWU College of Online Education.
Although Harry is new to his role, he has been working as an adjunct professor at the Johnson & Wales University Providence campus for about seven years now. Every day, his time here at JWU Online is spent communicating to students about their path to graduation and addressing the concerns they might have.
At Johnson & Wales University our corporate partnerships offer one thing, opportunity. Between a tuition benefit that makes going back to school affordable to having the flexibility to get your education at any of our four campuses or 100% online on your own time, the possibilities are limitless.
At the College of Online Education, our staff is thankful for a lot of things. In fact, they’re thankful for so many things that they filled an entire wall with sticky notes of what they’re thankful for this holiday season. But most of all, here at the College of Online Education we’re thankful for you, our students.
Check out the video to see everything our hardworking staff had to be grateful for this year and let us know what you’re thankful for by connecting with us on social using #JWUOnline.
Today, if you walked a mile in Mark Brewington’s shoes, you’d likely end up with your toes in the Pacific Ocean. The double Johnson & Wales University alum, ’11, ’18 MBA – Hospitality, (triple alum if you count his '08 associate degree in culinary arts) lives within a few blocks of the beach and keeps his horses on a horse farm outside of San Diego.
