Higher education has not kept up with the needs of employers
Find and develop job-ready, future-proof talent
Foundry College is designed to support both employers and workers
The Foundry College curriculum is designed to address both your hiring and training needs, and targets the particular skills and knowledge working adults need to adapt to changes in the labor market. We continually integrate employer feedback to ensure that the skills and knowledge we teach are relevant to the jobs your organization has today — and will have tomorrow. As an employer partner, you’ll have unique opportunities to sponsor employee enrollment, hire students and graduates, and influence curriculum design.
I realized that if we focused on subject matter that was directly related to the skills and knowledge employers need, we could improve individual lives, help employers, and support the broader economy.
