Workforce Solutions for Businesses

A Message from the School of Business

[0:00] The School of Business at the University of Phoenix is really dedicated to making sure that our students and our educational partners are getting the skills they need for the 21st Century jobs. Developing an educated workforce makes your organization more adaptable, more nimble, and able to continue to keep up in an increasingly competitive world. [00:19]

[00:20] An employer sponsoring their employees to attend our programs benefits in many ways, but one of the most important ways is that we bring them skills and education that they can use tomorrow. It's not just that they're learning what they need to do, but they're learning it from practitioners who've done it, and they're able to take that into the workforce the next day, put it into practice, use it, and really add value from day one. [00:43]

[00:44] Educational partnerships with the University of Phoenix offer a lot of benefits. We have 200 different locations and that brings us diverse faculty within our own faculty populations so we get a better understanding of the global and particularly the national aspects of issues that are coming up today. [01:01]

[01:02] Virtual organizations are one of the coolest things at the University of Phoenix. We've been using them in classrooms for close to ten years now. They add an interesting dimension a lot of our students may not have access to otherwise. Virtual organization, which is essentially an organization that's been created by us, populated with the help of our academic partners to get different, real-world examples, real-world file systems. We can build HR files, confidential legal files, things that a student would not have access to at their own employer. It's one of the things that I think adds the most interest to the University of Phoenix and really makes it clear how real-world our programs are. [01:45]

[01:45] Those students need a better understanding of how to operate and how to communicate across lines that they're not used to. They're looking for critical thinking skills. They're looking for problem-solving skills. They're looking for skills in interpersonal communications, collaboration. They're looking for the things that we actually at the University of Phoenix hold as our learning goals. [02:04]
