Student Success




EDMC - Corporate Education Programs

Your Company’s Tomorrow Starts with Ideas

EDMC can help your company train, energize, motivate and reward your employees. Turn them into great

managers, creative problem solvers, or put them on a path to new growth and development. Cultivate

employees who are eager to work, collaborate, partner, and share ideas. EDMC’s Corporate Education

Program benefits everyone across your company.

Build Talent. Invest in Your Employees.

Our corporate education program team will help you empower employees to develop the skills they need in

this changing world. EDMC’s belief is that excellence in education is measured by practical outcomes that

enhance the lives of our students, enabling them to make important contributions in their workplace and

in their communities. That’s why we offer educational opportunities to our own employees and can do the

same for yours through our corporate education partnerships.

How Can EDMC Schools Help Your Company?

At EDMC, our school systems all have rich backgrounds and solid reputations within the fields we specialize

in. We don’t offer every program under the sun to try and attract just anyone. Instead, we emphasize

career-focused programs that relate to those our students seek and the workforce demands. Our goal is to

provide students the knowledge and skills they need for personal growth and professional development.

EDMC schools are proud of our practitioner-based faculty. Instructors possess the required academic

credentials and, often more importantly, real-world experience and successful career insights. Access to our

qualified faculty enables working professionals or those seeking advancement within their organizations

the opportunity to interact with career professionals successful in both the academic and work world.

Unlike some career education programs, EDMC doesn’t lock a student into one modality. Many programs

are available not only in a traditional classroom, but can be delivered fully online or in a blended manner

(online and classroom combination) to suit scheduling options and personal learning needs.

“My experience in school has helped me in knowing how to work with a team.

When you work at a studio, you don’t get the chance to do every part of the

process yourself. You need to specialize in a certain area so that you may

become the best in it, rather than just okay at all areas. The Art Institute of

Dallas helped me to figure out which part of the 3D process I loved most.”
