How are you connecting talent to opportunity?


Our objective is to help your business or industry:

  • Recruit and retain skilled employees who are interested in long-term careers.
  • Replace the loss of institutional knowledge due to retirement.
At BSC, strong partnerships with business and industry are a key component to addressing these concerns. Our industry-responsive education model is designed to advance students along their career pathway while helping your company invest in its workforce. We do this by being: 
 
Flexible
  • Engage all populations from every generation
  • Offer a variety of online/on-campus courses and program start dates
  • Provide short-term stackable credentials customized to fit individual career pathways
Affordable Transferrable
  • Tangible skills learned through industry-driven curriculum
  • Interdisciplinary skillsets specific to business and industry standards and trends with an emphasis on employability

What type of strategies can your company implement?

  • Provide employee incentives through education reimbursement and scholarships
Empower Current Workforce
