College focuses on closing the technical skills gap

Minneapolis (August 16, 2017)–Rasmussen College, a regionally accredited private college,1 today announced three newly redesigned technology career-focused degree programs: Network Systems Administration Associate’s degree, Information Technology Associate’s degree and the Information Technology Management Bachelor’s degree-completion programs. These degree options are designed to prepare students to enter in-demand technology careers and help close the technical skills gap in rapidly transforming fields.
