Rutgers Business School is offering lifelong learning opportunities to its alumni, beginning with a series of free lunch and learn webinars and discounted admission to a wide array of executive education programs.
Lei Lei, the dean of Rutgers Business School has championed the program as a way of enriching and engaging alumni. The school boasts a global network of more than 43,000 graduates.
“As our alumni family seek opportunities to keep their skills current and learn throughout their lives, we want them to see Rutgers Business School as their educational partner,” Lei said in a statement.
Lifelong learning continues to gain traction as working professionals and business leaders realize the growing need and demand for knowledge.
“The need to stay relevant and learn throughout one’s life grows every day because of the pace of change,” Peter Methot, executive director of Rutgers Business School’s Executive Education, said in a statement.
Technology continues to drive much of that change, disrupting industries and careers and requiring skills and capabilities that many workers don’t have. “As a well-regarded business school,” Methot said, “we want to offer relevant knowledge that helps our stakeholders be the best version of themselves.”
