CCRI offers new business courses

An open house for those interested in business administration programs at the Community College of Rhode Island will take place this afternoon, Aug. 24, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the CCRI Newport County Campus, One John H. Chafee Blvd.,

Beginning this fall, the CCRI will offer an associate of science degree in general business through its Newport County Campus. The 62-credit degree program is accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs, and includes course work in accounting, management, and marketing. Previously, students who attended the Newport-based campus could take business courses there, but had to attend additional classes at one of CCRI's other three Rhode Island campuses in order to complete their program requirements.

For more information on the open house, call 851-1637. For more information on class availability and registration options, visit the CCRI Web site at www.ccri.edu

Fall classes begin the week of Sept. 5.
