Keep the Animal Business Management Program Alive at NEIT College!

This petition had 87 supporters

I am just finishing an Animal Business Management program at the New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich, RI. I've been attending here for about two years now to achieve my associates degree as a future Business manager in the animal field. I am finally in my last quarter and was told that the program is shutting down and will not be offered to college students who would like to attend this program in the future.

I find this extremely disappointing, because the value of the program can really benefit those who would like to consider this as a career someday. It offers a vast array of knowledge including the medical and business side of it. The professors who teach the program are real life veterinarians, certified vet technicians, marketers and business directors with years of experience in the field teaching their students a hands-on approach to develop into future leaders. It's important to have this program stay alive in the college because, unlike any other school the students are exposed to multiple facets of what they will actually expect in the field someday. This can include the student running a veterinary practice, owning their own business, working for a pharmaceutical company, getting more exposed to animal laws and changing them, and really so much more. The avenues of having careers in animal business management are endless!

In today's world it's important to have a trained animal business manager, not just someone who graduated from a business management program alone without any prior animal knowledge in the field. Now college is expensive enough, why on earth would anyone want to take on two separate technical courses right? I say this because without this program, future students would need to take two separate programs in order to gain the knowledge that i was able to achieve within my two years with an associates degree. The animal business management program was a perfect cross of the two fields mixed. I took this program on because, i was not at all interested in being a certified vet technician. Instead, this program is perfect for every student who wants to run an animal business, work in a veterinary practice, or really anywhere in the field knowing they have learned what it takes to go out and make a real difference in the world. 

Please sign my petition today in helping me fight to keep this program alive at the New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich, RI. I have learned so much and want others to experience how wonderful this program truly is!

Thank you for your support today!

Ps...this program has not been advertised on the radio, newspaper, school newsletter, or television. This needed to change earlier on,  which is why no one has heard much about the program to apply. NEIT is getting rid of the program, not giving it a fair chance!
