A course is an academic class taught by instructors experienced in a specific field of study. Courses vary in length depending on the subject matter, scope of content and other factors. Some have exclusive entry requirements while others offer open enrollment.

What is a course in professional studies? This discipline is designed to help high school and college graduates prepare to enter a competitive workforce. Areas of focus are broad and often include social sciences, business, law and economics. Some programs prepare graduates for leadership roles in their industries, while others assist international students who are seeking work in another country. Industry-based programs can be targeted to an individual's specific career goals; for example, professional studies courses within health care programs often focus on research.

Most career-minded individuals can benefit from this type of course. Students learn to establish best practices in their fields, which makes them more qualified for leadership roles. Professional studies courses may also teach specific skills such as managing computer systems and effective business writing, which can come in handy in any profession.

Because the length and scope of professional studies courses vary dramatically from one program to the next, it is difficult to estimate the cost. In general, extensive, comprehensive courses cost more than shorter programs.

The career prospects for an individual who has taken a course in professional studies are diverse, since these classes are often combined with specialized study in technology, business and finance. You may want to consider this course if you are interested in high-level business management roles such as chief executive officer or chief operating officer. Many students succeed in business consulting roles in which they provide their knowledge and expertise to other companies. These types of courses can also lead to a career as a human resources manager, financial services provider, business analyst or project manager.

Professional studies courses are available worldwide both online and through colleges and universities. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
