Over 700 MTC Members Can Now Advance their Skills with Convenient, Flexible Courses

The Maryland Tech Council (MTC), the largest technology and life sciences trade association in the state, and Mount St. Mary’s University (MSMU), a private Frederick County-based university with a 215-year history, today announced a partnership to provide MTC’s members with continuing education opportunities needed to advance their careers.

Fields of study include data science, logistics and supply chain management, business administration, biotechnology, project management, cybersecurity, and more. Courses can count toward undergraduate degrees, post-baccalaureate certificates, and graduate degrees. 

MSMU’s Division of Continuing Studies operates from the university’s Frederick campus and online, where it offers convenient, flexible, and affordable courses. Faculty include full-time university professors and accomplished working professionals who teach at night. The combination helps students learn fredcampus23328-2067-1-in-text.jpgconcepts in their field of interest and see how theory fits into real-world experience. 

“Tuition costs can often deter professionals from taking advantage of continuing education opportunities,” said Kelly Schulz, CEO of the Maryland Tech Council. “This exciting partnership with Mount St. Mary’s University lets our members achieve real savings on flexible coursework relevant to their careers.” 

“For more than 20 years Mount St. Mary’s University has proudly served adult undergraduate and graduate students in Frederick County,” said Jennifer Staiger, Ph.D., MSMU’s associate provost of the Division of Continuing Studies.  “As a Partner in Trust with the Maryland Tech Council, we are deeply honored to offer reasonably priced educational opportunities that help our fellow MTC members ensure that their employees have the education and skill sets needed.”
