Endorsed by the Mississippi Casino Operators Association, the certificate features a business-education partnership instructional model, iPASS® (Industry Professionals Assistance in Student Success). The instructional approach is hi-touch with live video conferencing interaction, project mentoring, and guest lectures by casino executives affiliated with major gaming corporations such as Caesars/Harrah's Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, Penn National Gaming, Boyd Gaming Corporation, Ameristar, and more. Participants enjoy interactive and synergistic learning through discussion boards and communications with instructors and peers through social media technology.
