Stockton University’s School of Business has announced a new partnership with casino industry experts to launch a certificate program in casino resort operations. The Integrated Casino Resort Operations Certificate was developed in collaboration with human resources professionals and industry experts to provide participants with the specific skills sought after by the industry.
According to Jane Bokunewicz, LIGHT’s faculty director, the eight-unit series will cover a wide range of casino resort operations, including gaming, surveillance, food and beverage, and meetings and conventions. The goal is to give participants a comprehensive understanding of all departments within a casino resort.
Bokunewicz emphasized the program’s focus on providing a strong foundation in business literacy for managers, as well as a broader understanding of how integrated casino resort operations work together. The certificate is designed to empower participants to advance in their careers within the industry or pivot from a related field.
The certificate program is set to run for eight consecutive Tuesdays from January 16, 2024, to March 4, 2024. Each in-person workshop will be three hours long and will take place at the Stockton Atlantic City campus. The curriculum was developed based on input from representatives of all nine Atlantic City casino hotels and will be taught by a team of 12 local experts.
Interested individuals can find a full listing and schedule of courses, instructor bios, and enrollment information on Stockton University’s website. The tuition for the program is $899 per participant, with discounted rates available for Stockton alumni and groups of three or more.
This initiative comes at a time when Atlantic City’s casinos had a strong month in September, reflecting the industry’s continued growth and demand for skilled professionals. The new certificate program aims to meet this demand by providing participants with the necessary expertise to thrive in casino resort operations.
