Mr. President, we agree.
When the state of manufacturing is strong, then the State of our Union is strong.
That’s why University of Phoenix has embarked on a mission to advance the state of American manufacturing alongside The Manufacturing Institute.
Through education, a renewed renaissance of the manufacturing sector is attainable, one that will carry our nation’s economy into the future.
Let’s get to work.™
For the first time in history, a generation of Americans will be less educated than their parents and grandparents.
Every day more than 45,000 Apollo Group employees, faculty, alumni and students work with a singular focus to help close the skills gap in America.
The Manufacturing Institute and University of Phoenix are working together to help U.S. manufacturers develop a sustainable workforce. University of Phoenix’s primary role in this partnership is to offer highly accessible educational pathways for working learners.
In this compelling new report, Gregory W. Cappelli, Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Group and Chairman of Apollo Global, explores how America fell behind the global education curve and how we can return to educational excellence.
University of Phoenix helps community college students build upon the higher education foundation they’ve already gained. Through a community college partnership, we can guide associate-degreed students to earn a bachelor’s degree and connect them with an education that blends the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the real world.
The American workforce is missing the education needed to compete in a global economy. If we can close the educational achievement gap for students from the poorest families, we can add $400 to $670 billion to U.S. GDP annually.
Companies of all sizes and industries are partnering with University of Phoenix to provide their employees with the knowledge they need to drive their businesses forward. Our impressive body of more than 32,000 faculty members—who bring an average of 16 years of industry experience to the classroom—help employees understand how to navigate the complexities of a rapidly changing business environment.
