Purdue Tackles Job Training
Inside Higher Ed
Purdue University recently announced a five-year deal with outsourcing firm Infosys to perform research and provide job training for the company’s employees. This plan could indicate a turning point in higher ed, with four-year institutions offering skill development traditionally provided by community colleges and for-profit universities. Purdue hopes its partnership with Infosys will address skills gaps and give workers valuable skills for the modern workplace.
