Campbell University Adult & Online Education will offer its first professional program, Finance & Forecasting, this fall. The program is a one-of-a-kind education bootcamp designed to introduce professionals to finance skills needed to make better and more informed business decisions.

“We designed the course for managers and executive-level professionals who may not have experience in finance but are tasked with acting in a fiduciary capacity,” said Katherine Spradley, Campbell University adjunct faculty and program developer.

Participants will learn Excel techniques to analyze financial metrics and trends and use those methods to create an accurate and sustainable forecast. 

The program will conclude with participant presentations for a panel of Campbell Business School faculty, alumni, and Orange Owned business owners including Spradley, Stephen Adekunle, Katie Sherman Smith, and Nur Onvural.

Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a Credly credential, which is a digital badge recognized by industry leaders as evidence of skills and achievements.

The pilot course will be offered at the Campbell  Raleigh campus, an extension of Adult & Online Education, from  Oct.19 to 26, 2019. “Our vision is that this will serve as a catalyst for other programs as we learn the challenges and work to meet the needs of professional networks in our area,” said Sherryl McLaughlin, Raleigh campus director and program coordinator.
