We are a strategic business unit of the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto. Our role within the school is to provide lifelong learning for the development of professionals and executives long after their full-time education has been completed and they are in the work force.
Because few of us have the same job for life, we constantly have to re-invent ourselves, learn new skills and adapt to the changing marketplace and business environment. Today’s professionals and executives must be able to quickly develop and fine-tune personal business skills to adapt and grow.
“Learning doesn’t stop at the end of your formal education in high school, undergrad or post-grad degree”
Executive and Professional Development at Schulich is all about this kind of “just-in-time” learning – learning which is focused, practical and immediately applicable to the skills you need and the task at hand. Select from a wide variety of relevant management topics at Schulich today, and use the new skills and techniques you learn at the office tomorrow.
“If you need to use it, learn it now”
We are there to serve employers as well as the individual
Sponsorship of employee training makes good sense for an organization. But beyond that, organizations have needs to survive, grow and adapt in areas such as leadership, operations, creation of a talent pipeline and a drive for creativity and agility.
At the best of times it encourages creativity and retention, and in times of great uncertainty it provides the edge an organization needs to survive. Your investment in training at the individual or organizational level can benefit you in many ways:
- Transfers knowledge of new techniques and strategies to the whole organization.
- Creates new ideas and new ways of doing business.
- Facilitates an in-depth analysis of organizational needs.
- Creates cross-training options for multi-functional employees.
- Develops networking, knowledge, and resources among peers in similar job functions.
- Strengthens the bond between employee and employer.
- Keeps you on the cutting-edge of current trends.
- Solves workplace problems.
