Keybridge and the university will collaborate to create learning materials for working professionals, focusing on skill areas including leadership, project management, digital marketing, business acumen, and more, with the aim of improving their job readiness and facilitating career growth.
New Delhi, January 20, 2023: Keybridge Global Education is an edtech organization that aims to narrow the divide between traditional career training and the outcomes anticipated by employers. The company has joined forces with Maryville University in the United States to design educational material that will help students become job-ready. Maryville will deliver personalized learning content as part of Keybridge’s career development curriculum to aid professionals in expanding their knowledge and staying relevant in their respective fields.
“At Keybridge we are keen to work with a university and other content partners that are invested in creating education programs more relevant to employers and that believe in our vision and approach. Maryville University and its workforce development arm – MaryvilleWORKS – is focused on helping businesses in the greater St. Louis, Missouri region of the U.S. They have a proven approach of designing learning content and developing evaluative criteria to demonstrate success in corporate environments. This is aligned with what Keybridge brings to the table and complements our strengths in career planning, management and career skills development,” said Amol Dani, co-founder and CEO, Keybridge Global Education.
The collaboration’s goal is to offer more opportunities for professionals who feel dissatisfied with their professional development or career trajectory. Rather than settling for generic course templates and badges that may not help them advance in their careers, Maryville and Keybridge will co-create learning content focused on areas such as leadership, project management, digital marketing, and professional skills. These courses will be complemented by Keybridge’s exclusive tools for career planning and management and enhancing employability skills. The programs are hosted on a learner-centric learning management system, providing access to tools, content, and resources anytime, anywhere.
Dr. Scott Chadwick, chief of corporate partnership acquisitions for Maryville University said, “At Maryville, we don’t focus on the one-size-fits-all education model, be it for individuals or businesses thinking of upskilling or reskilling their workforce. Because Keybridge and Maryville share a common goal of empowering working professionals and support businesses that must meet the evolving demands of their industries, we are sure our partnership will positively improve their workforce development and help them grow and thrive.”
Keybridge Global Education has chosen India as its launch market to offer learner-centric skill development programs, with its parent company headquartered in the U.S. Their unique learning framework is designed to keep the learner at the center of the conversation, offering tools and resources to ensure they are job-ready and employable on an ongoing basis.
