Stanford Center for Professional Development Online Graduate-Level Education for Working Professionals Dr. Andy DiPaolo SCPD Executive Director Senior Associate Dean School of Engineering Stanford University
A technical workforce requires continuous, career-long education in order to support economic growth and development, maintain corporate competitiveness and insure career vitality.
Career-long education supported by companies results in increased employee satisfaction leading to greater productivity. Proven to be a solid return-on-investment.
Increased work demands, mobility and changing life styles reduces time for technical professionals to engage in continuing education and training.
“ What our engineers and managers are saying is that the demands of their jobs are such that they can’t get away from work. Since they are working 60 hours a week, any education they get has to be at their convenience and available online .”
