The Tribal Enterprise Management program offers a series of short-term certificates to prepare for jobs in tribal enterprises such as hotel, restaurant and gaming services. The goal is to prepare employees to move from entry-level positions into mid-management and administration. Students do not need to be tribal members to participate.
The program is a combination of in-class learning, online interaction and customized hands-on experience. Students can earn a short-term certificate, or can complete a series of certificates to earn an Associate in Technical Arts degree in Business Administration. Students can also continue toward a bachelor’s degree.
Financial aid and other assistance is available, including state Opportunity Grants, which provide up to $3,500 to pay for tuition, books and other needs.
