ACCELERATED DEGREE PROGRAM
The Executive Leadership Academy is an accelerated concentration under the business entrepreneurship degree.
Students will engage in a unique alternative to the traditional method of earning an undergraduate degree.
ELA serves adult learners who develop structured approaches and solutions to real-world problems. ELA is designed for
accelerated nontraditional degree options at Simmons College of Kentucky. ELA serves adults ages 23 and older
who have completed a minimum of 45 college semester hours with a cumulative 2.0 GPA or better.
Adult learners are typically employed full-time. Thus, ELA offers flexible evening courses in the following formats: Online, Campus, or Blended. Each of our degree options is one night per week over an 18-month period. ELA offers the adult learner the opportunity to earn the requisite semester hours of credit. We value prior knowledge, work experience, and technical training.
Our students are eligible to receive additional semester hours of credit through the required prior learning portfolio process. Credit hours can be earned for technical and professional non-collegiate training, employment, and life-learning experiences through a Portfolio Curriculum. Students identify their experiences in a mandatory essay format and document all appropriate credentials in a portfolio for evaluation.
