“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is a success.” -Henry Ford.
People who pursue higher education are expected to be equipped with the competencies required in various employment settings. Higher education institutions have the responsibility to seek alternatives to further enhance academic opportunities for students. This can be done through active collaboration between the industry and the academe. Industry-academic collaboration supports technical advancement and creativity.
The industry-academic partnership has been a crucial element in determining the appropriateness of education and developing the skills and attitudes that graduates must possess in order to match the employment competencies needed in the job market. These collaborations benefit both parties: industry obtains a skilled workforce equipped with practical training and technical expertise, while higher education institutions have the chance to improve their curricular offerings and training and to integrate the necessary knowledge, skills, and right attitude into the curriculum to become responsive to the current industry demands.
Assumption College of Davao aims to revise its curriculum to keep abreast of the fast-changing growth and development of local and global society driven by information, data, and technology. Thus, working with the industry partners will help identify successful indicators for curriculum integration that would potentially increase employment opportunities for its graduates and respond to the ever-changing needs of society.
The venue of the event will be at the Auditorium, and it will commence on May 12, 2022 (Friday) from 8 am to 12 nn. The participants of this event are the industry partners or allies in molding the students to be ready for the real world of employment.
