Welcome from the Dean

Posted by on October 14, 2011

Welcome to the Health Fitness Specialist (HFS) blog for Globe University/Minnesota School of Business! My name is Amy Erickson and I am the dean of the HFS program and I am excited to share stories with you about our students, instructors, the curriculum, networking, and tips for job searching success. 

It is an excellent time to become a personal trainer. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov), this profession will grow faster than other professions and will see an over 25% increase between 2008 and 2018. Club memberships are steadily growing and clients want more than a trainer with a certification; they want a client who has a degree.

In this quarter’s newsletter, you’ll read a graduate success story and hear how that graduate is reaching out to help current HFS students. Stay tuned to our blog, as our next feature will share information about Globe University’s new scholarship matching programs and assistance in finding scholarship money for your education.


Thank you for your Interest in Minnesota School of Business.
