SURVEY OF BUSINESS EDUCATION FOR ADULTS IN THE UNIVERSITIES OF METROPOLITAN NEW YORK.
STUART, ALLAN
A SURVEY WAS MADE OF PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS EDUCATION COURSES FOR ADULTS, PROVIDED BY 14 UNIVERSITIES IN NEW YORK CITY. YEARLY ENROLLMENTS VARIED FROM 350 TO 9,000. TEACHING METHODS VARIED ACCORDING TO THE NEEDS OF THE INSTITUTION, AND CLASSES WERE MOSTLY HELD AT NIGHT IN SCHOOL CLASSROOMS. MORE MEN THAN WOMEN PARTICIPATED, THE AGES RANGED FROM 17 TO 72, AND THE PERCENTAGE OF COLLEGE GRADUATES RANGED FROM NONE TO 60 PERCENT. THE MAJORITY OF THE INSTITUTIONS HAD A PRESCRIBED METHOD TO FORMULATE GRADES. STUDENT FEES VARIED FROM NOTHING TO $65, DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH FINANCIAL AID WAS AVAILABLE FROM INDUSTRY, GOVERNMENT, OR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. A TREND WAS FOUND TOWARD COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL EFFORTS AMONG PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS, INSTITUTIONS, AND GOVERNMENT, BUT FEW INTER-UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS EXISTED. PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING AND JOB PLACEMENT SERVICES WERE PROVIDED. PROGRAMS WERE PUBLICIZED BY MAILING LISTS, BULLETINS, AND PUBLIC MEDIA. LITTLE HAD BEEN DONE IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN BUSINESS EDUCATION, AND THERE WAS A NEED FOR MORE PUBLICITY ON ADULT PROGRAMS, CLARIFICATION OF FACULTY STATUS, AND STUDY ON DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES.
