Globe Remains Nimble in Changing Job Markets

Globe University

Dictionary.com defines nimble as quick and light in movement; moving with ease; agile; active; rapid or quick to understand, think, devise, etc.

That's exactly how Globe University defines itself. As a private institution, Globe has the ability to quickly change programs and curriculum to fit the evolving needs of the business community.

"We can be very nimble in terms of reacting to the market," said Campus Director John Andrick.

A good example is how the university is currently working on a way to train students in the mobile app development field. The process involves researching markets, working with businesses and experts in the industry and ensuring there will be job opportunities when new students graduate in two years.

Globe also works closely with students to ensure they are prepared to start a career when they finish their program or degree. They believe an education should be more; it should be the building blocks to starting your career. "We want students to be prepared to be employees," Andrick said.

Depending on the program, students range from typical college age to older-than-average students who are looking to change careers. The unique student body helps prepare them for the working world.

"Students interact with different generations like they will when they begin their careers," said Babs Coler, community manager at Globe.

Real-world experience is also an integral part of the journey at Globe. Students in massage therapy and veterinary technician programs are able to practice their skills in fully equipped classrooms on campus. Accounting and business students are required to do externships to help enforce the lessons they learn in the classroom and ensure students have the ability to enter the workforce upon graduation.

"More than anything, we want people to know we’re here," Andrick said. "We want to build partnerships with the business community."

When finding needs for education in the community, Globe can always use partners to help them determine where this is a missing link in education.

What does all of this say about Globe University? They care. They care about the students they are teaching, the businesses they are preparing them for and the community they live and work in.
