Montana Employers are Designing Degree Programs with Montana Universities

Montana employers are designing degree programs.

Reported by EAB, Montana employers and state agencies are partnering with Montana universities – using workforce data to determine degree program demand, and launching new programs where they see gaps.

The goal is to make sure that Montana state schools continue to focus on serving the needs of the state, and to make sure the communication bridge between higher education and industry is sufficiently crossed, in order to ensure the students colleges are graduating are the same workforce employers are excited to hire.

The takeaway? How do our institutions better partner with employers to make more data-driven decisions and ensure the viability of our programs?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
