Do You Want To Teach, But Don’t Have a PhD? Check out AAA PQ Program, AACSB Bridge Program,Deadlines in March
You may have seen the front page story in today’s Wall Street Journal, “High Schools Add Classes Scripted by Corporations,”  by Anne Marie Chaker, about how corporations are funding career development and specific skill training programs, to create the next generation of workers in their field.
On a related note, if you have thought about teaching at the college level but assumed you couldn’t because you don’t have a PhD, think again – the AAA’s program for Professionally Qualified (“PQ”) instructors, or the AACSB’s “Bridge” program, may be for you.
