Go Back
  • Earn Your Degree While Working Full-Time

    Deciding to go back to school and earning your degree can be one of the most rewarding decisions that you can make. However, it can sometimes be easier said than done, especially if you’re working full-time, raising a family or both. How do you manage your time and meet deadlines with work projects as well as course assignments?


    Because of your busy schedule with work and family commitments, you may find it difficult to attend classes, which can delay earning your degree even more.  An option to help adult learners is completing college credit by examination, more commonly known as “testing out” of class. Over 3,800 colleges and universities, both traditional and non-traditional, allow some college credit to be earned through credit by examination.


    The three most widely accepted credit by examination tests are CLEP (College Board), DSST (formerly known as DANTES Subject Standardized Test) and ECE (Excelsior College). When completing college credit by examination, you can earn your degree faster at your own pace while focusing on your work and family commitments.


    iStudySmart.com offers over 60 study courses in business, nursing, humanities, natural science and social science to help you complete college credit and pass these exams. Courses are affordable and special discounts are available for adult learners. Please click here for more details.

  • Better Job Market for Recent College Grads

    According to a recent article by USA Today, 2011 college graduates are entering a better job market than 2010’s graduates. Additionally, employers have an increase in open positions and plan to hire 19.3% more recent graduates than last year.


    Because of the recession and the need for employers to “tighten up their belts” in 2010, employers had 40.5 applicants per job but didn’t have enough jobs to fill for all the applicants. However, with the recent hiring increase, employers have only half as many applicants per job as last year.


    This job market increase is important for current college students as well. College students who chose to complete college credit through standardized exams can help them complete their degree faster, allowing them to get a head start on their careers. Credit by exam is accepted at over 3,800 colleges and helps adult learners complete college credit while saving money.


    iStudySmart.com provides over 60 effective study courses to assist college students in testing out. The study courses are available in Traditional, Advanced and Premier formats. The courses are structured so adult learners can study at their own pace, where they are most comfortable and test out when they’re ready.

  • How Corporate Education Solutions Benefits the Adult Learner


    In his book, The World is Flat, Thomas Friedman writes about globalization in the 21st century and how it affects us all. It is impossible to avoid being part of worldwide telecommunications, even if you just watch TV. For most of us, we can't imagine life without it. On a daily basis, we find more and more communication tools and available media that change the way we communicate with each other and how we learn.


    One of the good attributes of globalization is in education. We have more choices about how we learn, and where we learn, than just the traditional classroom, not to mention, an infinite variety of subjects available than ever before. In a way, we are now all global students.


    Why CES?

    Like a lot of schools and websites, Corporate Education Solutions (CES) offers online courses in a large variety of great subjects. What makes us different (and better) is we specialize in Live Student Support, and give our students the best online product for what they want and need. For example, want to learn about how to interview or be interviewed? We have courses, videos and eBooks. Don't know which course to choose? Which video(s)? Our staff is trained to help you do just that. If you already know what you want, then we'll be there to assist you so you don't feel lost in this (global) world of Internet education.


    In addition, our courses are flexible, self-paced and reasonably priced. A few years ago, Bill Gates stated, that during a recession was the time to re-invent yourself or at the very least prepare yourself for the job you will have in the future. Let us help you, help yourself.
