Rosetta Stone Chosen as Distinguished Community Employer

The Harrisonburg Campus selected Rosetta Stone as its Distinguished Community Employer for the spring term.  Rosetta Stone was founded in Harrisonburg and provides cutting-edge language learning materials to schools, businesses, government organizations, and millions of individuals around the world. Offered in more than 30 languages, Rosetta Stone provides opportunities for our business students as they intern and move into full time professional positions after graduation. 

Over the last several years Rosetta Stone has provided four internship opportunities to National students, preparing them for full time business opportunities in their chosen fields.  Additionally, multiple National graduates currently work for the company. Chris Balderson, the Harrisonburg Campus’ lead accounting instructor, has been employed by Rosetta Stone for 10 years and has been instrumental in arranging for externships as well as graduate placements with the company.  Chris said, “National’s accounting curriculum is ‘real world’ accounting.  Our graduates are prepared to perform actual accounting functions their first day on the job with minimal further training.”
