ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the online strategy employed by the School of Health Professions of the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) to save its graduate clinical nutrition program in 2006. It mentions that the program could have been easily scrapped but there are factors that saved it from abolition which include its history of offering online courses. It adds that marketing the program online was undertaken by contacting and encouraging previous students to finish their courses.
