Open for business
Strayer University on Tuesday officially opened its business campus in Kansas City, offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs for working adults.
The school is at 10450 Holmes Road. It is the university’s first campus in Missouri. It is also opening a school in the St. Louis area.
Strayer offers about a dozen degree programs, including business administration, accounting, information systems, human resource management, education and economics. The school also offers an executive MBA online program through its Jack Welch Management Institute.
The school has more than 100 campuses in 24 states and the District of Columbia.
Translators bridge gap
A multicultural population speaks many languages, and that’s why demand is booming for translators.
Companies, hospitals, social service agencies, call centers and other businesses are using language translation services in ever larger numbers. Meanwhile, the bilingual and multilingual professionals who provide those services are feeling a greater need for professional education.
To those ends, the Mid-America Chapter of the American Translators Association is holding an educational symposium for translators.
The event will be March 22 and 23 in the Regnier Center at Johnson County Community College. The breadth of translation services will be covered along with attention to professional specialties that require specific knowledge.
Event planners note, for example, that Abigail Dahlberg, president of the Mid-America chapter, is a British native who specializes in German-English translations in the waste management, environmental and recycling industries.
An optional American Translators Association certification examination will be offered on March 24.
Information about the symposium and registration is at www.micata.org.
