The opportunity to gain real-world experience in Project Management will be combined with rigorous training to help prepare them to succeed in college and career.
“Partnering with IIB Council will give Kaplan Higher Education Academy a unique opportunity to make sure that our students have an experience that can help better prepare them for the future,” said Kevin Chow, Managing Partner of Kaplan Higher Education Academy. “Our goal for integrating the Certified Project Manager program into our courses is to help students apply the skills they are learning to solve real-world issues and, ultimately, show them how our education directly relates to their career interests and aspirations.’”
IIB Council’s Global Partnership Program is part of a successful and increasingly popular approach to education that is transforming Training Centers and Universities across the world. This works by integrating rigorous academics with career-based learning and real-world project-based experiences to provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in Project Management career. By making education a personally relevant, engaging experience, IIB Council’s Programs shows students exactly how their education leads to their next career steps.
The involvement of the business community is critical to making this new global innovative approach to business education work. IIB Council’s programs are developed in collaboration with advisory board members who are currently working in their respective fields, making sure that the courses have huge practical value for students and not just another theoretical purely academic course they will struggle to use in a real-world application.
“We’re excited to be giving students in Singapore more exposure to the latest tools and technologies and giving them a better understanding of the types of career paths and jobs that are available to them,” said Irene Dima, Managing Director at IIB Council. “We view this global program as an investment in the potential future of Kaplan Higher Education Academy’s students by helping them develop the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in Project Management. This solution can help us ensure we have enough workers with the necessary training and credentials to fill the increasingly skilled jobs our global economy demands.”
