The way we work is constantly evolving. Innovations in technology and new approaches
to traditional practices force us to evaluate how we can meet the changing demands
of clients. Often, we find that our workforce needs additional development to employ
the skills necessary to succeed in a dynamic corporate environment.
The University of Memphis has created innovative partnerships to meet the workforce needs of corporations throughout the Mid-South. Through customized training programs that are tailored to your company’s needs, the UofM can help your organization grow and retain your talent and position your organization for success in an everchanging world.
The past few years have forced us to answer some hard questions about the future of work. The way we work will never be the same and the way we train our workers is changing as well. Universities have centuries of expertise in creating education, and the University of Memphis is a recognized leader in online programs. But the classroom isn’t the only place that we excel in building the future of remote work. Our corporate partnerships have generated innovative solutions like UMRF Ventures and UM Global – two examples of how we have adapted to build a modern workforce that can weather any storm. The University of Memphis is capable of building customized training programs that fit the needs of your company – from corporate continuing education and certified training, to the cultivation of a student talent pipeline that leverages our 21,000+ student population, we are ready to help.
