University of Phoenix Connecting Student Learning to Workplace Skills in 2021
May 03, 2021 • 1 minute read
Due to the increasing demand of American adults seeking further training to remain employable, the University of Phoenix and labor market analysis leader Emsi have teamed up to bridge the gap between higher education and career demands.
EMSI gathers data from real-time job postings and government labor sources to create an algorithm to identify skills currently in demand in the market. Then the university translates this information into curricula and programs to teach students the skills necessary to stay employable and succeed in their careers. Instead of relying on traditional curricula, the University of Phoenix adjusts its programs and syllabi according to the current labor market.
