The New Student: The Career Shifter
Older students are returning to school in search of new skills.
The average age of college students is rising, thanks in large part to a growing number of adults who are looking for skills-based educations that can help them achieve new goals. Many of these students lead busy lives, have families, and aren’t as technologically savvy as their younger counterparts. They’re looking for flexible educations that can give them the skills they need to pursue new opportunities.
Jenzabar has the tools institutions need to help non-traditional students, like the career shifter, get the educations and skills they need to pursue new goals. Our user-friendly solutions allow colleges and universities to offer flexible, competency-based programs that draw these new students to campus and enable them to gain skills necessary for lucrative jobs in new industries.
