The pursuit of lifelong learning-whether to enrich our lives, follow a new dream, or simply challenge ourselves, is certainly something that appeals to many of us. For some professionals, however, ongoing training in their fields of expertise is more important than for others. It didn’t take long for educators to see that the vast network of interconnected computers, databases, archives and individual users could offer more than dictionaries and encyclopedias, not to mention cartoons and the modern version of “French postcards.” Some people are content to be entertained and titillated by the Internet while, fortunately for society, many others are interested in continuing their education via online colleges – and the medical profession has, as expected, been one of the biggest adopters of this “high-tech” distance learning.

Business-related courses and programmes, such as the advanced business certificate— which is internship-eligible— introduction to business programmes for non-business majors, and specialised business courses designed to help hone business English skills—are especially attractive given Columbia’s location in one of the world’s commerce and finance capitals.
