Over the last several years higher education has been looking to businesses for more than just continuing education students and research funding. If academic institutions can find ways to serve corporate training and learning needs, then companies may provide an additional source of revenue.  At the same time, businesses are looking to universities and colleges to discover innovative ways to address many of their challenges. Unfortunately, too often both organizations are frustrated by the apparent inability to effectively connect.

You can make a connection and develop strong, mutually beneficial relationships. A panel of continuing education and corporate outreach innovators will discuss how to uncover and act on the growing opportunities between higher education and business in this OEED webinar, Education Trends from Corporate Training Executives and Professional, Continuing, and Online Education Leaders. 

Learn how your institution can:

  • Increase the success rate of engagements with companies
  • Identify the upcoming changes in the marketplace for corporate learning
  • Leverage the strengths of your institution within the corporate learning marketplace

 Panelists:

  • Alice S. Warren, Vice Provost, Continuing Education, North Carolina State University
  • Rita Buffington, Sr. Director, Learning, Qualcomm
  • David Vance, Executive Director, Center for Talent Reporting; Founding and Former President, Caterpillar University

 We hope you will join us for our free webinar,

The Outreach, Engagement and Economic Development Network (OEED) represents the integration of university outreach and engagement with economic and workforce development. It focuses on the role that universities can play in the advancement of initiatives that impact our communities and promote economic development at the national, regional and local levels. OEED supports and advances the mutual exchange of intellectual resources and expertise between the university and its broader external communities of government, business and industry, non-profit organizations, community groups, and other educational institutions. Its core mission is to support network members in promoting new and innovative, internal and external collaborations to help advance local and regional economies.
