Advantages of Partnerships

Organizations are vocal about the skills gap, 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 work collaboratively with businesses and organizations to understand their strategies and related skill requirements needed.

Our goal is 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. This includes:

  • Collaboration, innovation and responsiveness
  • Customizable classes, certificates, programs and degrees
  • Focus on real-world applicability of education
  • Adaptability to the organization’s needs
  • Subject matter experts on faculty
  • Flexibility of format (1-day, multiple day, 7-week, 15-week) and location of classes (at employer, at campus or online)
  • Direct billing to employer or deferred billing to employees if employer reimburses for classes
