  1. 1. Quenching the Thirst for Education: How Can a Panama University Make Education More Affordable?Success in life and work comes more easily to people with good education. Education has nevermattered to individuals success as it does now. As the world continues to shake off the worst ofthe economic doldrums, companies have resumed the process of hiring people to variouspositions albeit cautiously.Competition for jobs is fierce because the demand for jobs far outstrips supply. As such,employers are now compelled to hire only the most suitable candidates and who happen to be theindividuals with good education and skills. People who have been lucky to keep their jobs cannotsleep easy either considering the massive internal competition in the workplace. It has thusbecome imperative for employees to keep sharpening their skills and upgrading their academicqualifications because if they dont they risk never moving up the corporate ladder and evenbeing sent packing.The high demand for education has unfortunately coincided with a time of economic turmoil inmany parts of the world. Getting a college diploma is becoming more and more difficult for a lotof people. Fortunately, universities are innovating new ways of availing education to people atmore pocket-friendly costs.One of the ways in which universities are making education more affordable is eliminating theneed for students to travel to and take residence in their respective universities. For instance, ifyou have been enrolled in the University of Panama, you will incur significant expensesrelocating to the Panama University and finding a place to stay during your studies. TheUniversity of Panama can save you a lot of time and money by availing its courses throughalternative means such as open learning and e-learning. With these alternative learning methodsyou will be able to benefit from the courses offered at the Panama University from the comfortof your own home.In addition to distance and e-learning the University of Panama can open satellite campuses invarious parts of the world. People can take classes at these University of Panama satelliteswithout ever having to set foot at the Panama University itself. This strategy has enableduniversities take education to remote parts of the world where people dont have access to qualityeducation. It also makes education more affordable because people can comfortably study fromhome a long distance away. Offering courses in collaboration with local affiliates is perhaps thebest alternative to opening satellite campuses because the Panama University can leverage theresources and human capital of the affiliates.Eventually, students taking online courses, through distance learning, studying at affiliatedinstitutions or studying at satellite campuses all receive valid diplomas from the University ofPanama having spent less money than what they would have spent had they traveled to Panamafor their studies.About the AuthorFor more information West Coast University Panama please visithttp://www.westcoastuniversity.edu.pa/
