Professional Enhancement Program

The Professional Enhancement Program (PEP) in Information Processing is sponsored by the Learning and Development (L&D) Office. The PEP certificate program began in 1995 and requires 12 semester hours of Ball State course work offered by the Department of Information Systems and Operations Management in the Miller College of Business. Electives include Microcomputer Applications for Business, Databases and Information Resource Management, Business Systems Application Development, and Business and Managerial Communications. PEP allows employees to upgrade and master information processing skills that enhance current job performance and opens the door for future employment opportunities. Participants are admitted to the university as non-degree students although employees currently enrolled as regular students are also eligible. Use of the Ball State University Fee Remission Program (free tuition) is available for eligible Ball State employees for these undergraduate classes.
