Strategic Partnerships Director    


Industry Informed, Project Based, Digital, +Humanistic

Each Rensselaer at Work experience is designed from decades of industry partnerships with aerospace and defense, commercial and consumer electronics, software, consulting, energy, entertainment, financial services, semiconductors, insurance, and manufacturing companies. It is through conversations with leaders from every sector — validated by labor market analysis — that we identify the competencies that professionals now need.

These competencies are mastered by professionals who are pulled through a series of projects directing them to use new tools and approaches in real time. In essence, this is the “learning and doing” that adds the greatest value in your investment.

Employees you sponsor will connect with us using the RensselaerStudio — our shared digital platform that anticipates the busy lives of professionals. It includes a full suite of the latest software and resources required to complete project work with ease. We hire subject-matter experts from the field to lead the learning experience as instructor/mentors, who guide participants to learn from each other’s backgrounds and experience.

The value of having access to a Rensselaer education from anywhere in the world cannot be underestimated. The expertise and mentored projects engineered into the Rensselaer at Work programs are the very best I’ve ever seen, hands down.
