Our primary goal is to provide students with marketable skills leading to employment. Certainly, that means the technical skills and knowledge required in the career field chosen by the student. Our hands-on coursework and combination of academic and real-world instruction provide those skills.
Marketable skills encompass more. Employers also expect technical competence while demanding good communication skills, teamwork, positive attitudes, high performance standards, and a willingness to accept responsibility in the workplace. In order to provide these equally necessary marketable skills, we integrate communication opportunities in all of our courses and encourage team involvement whenever appropriate. We also demonstrate and emphasize these performance standards to our students by requiring completion of a workplace-related project for appraisal.
At Herzing University students not only learn the technical and business skills required in professional occupations, they are also expected to develop essential work habits. Consequently, we stress the importance of attendance as an integral element of a complete education and as an important work habit to develop. Important work habits include responsibility and reliability, and attendance in class is a major factor in both these areas. Further, class attendance benefits the student through increased opportunity for learning, added success of team experiences, and demonstrated respect for the instructor and fellow students.
At Herzing University, we believe in student service. We are focused on providing all that we can to help students graduate, attain their career objectives, and fulfill their goals. We stand ready and able to demonstrate our commitment to your success.
