Jenny Stine: Why Can’t We Be Friends? Academe, Corporate Universities & Educational Partnerships

Jenny Stine on Corporate Ed & Academe

While they might seem like natural partners to universities looking to engage with industry, the commoditization of content coupled with outdated partnership and program delivery models in universities has worked against productive relationships. Based on the results of a recent research study, this talk explores key challenges in university-corporate educational relationships and highlights opportunities for collaboration and innovation.
