Advantages of Partnerships

Organizations are vocal about the skills gap which is defined as: the gap between the skills level of current talent and the skills level needed to accomplish business objectives.  Now more than 60% of jobs in the U.S. require post-secondary education or training.  We need to work collaboratively with businesses and organizations to understand their strategies and related skill requirements needed.

Husson University works to provide an environment in which organizations, in the public and private sectors, can collaborate with Husson in an effort to advance their business goals.
