The Wescoe School is taking its renowned interactive classroom experience off the Muhlenberg campus directly to students’ workplaces. Studies show that approximately 50 to 75 percent of a person’s waking hours are spent at work, traveling to and from work, or engaged in work-related activities. Cognizant of this trend, Wescoe is accommodating students by bringing dynamic education to the place where it is most accessible.
Wescoe offers workplace learning opportunities for Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network employees, allowing them to complete the school's accelerated degree program in Business Administration with a concentration in healthcare management onsite at two of the network's hospital locations. Community partnerships with other local businesses have featured non-credit education for the organizations' present and future leaders; the curriculum for these initiatives has been co-created by Wescoe administration and the company's senior management, ensuring that it is tailored to the development priorities of our partners. Associate Dean Joe Kornfeind is optimistic about expanding similar satellite services to various corporations throughout the Lehigh Valley. "We are pleased to be able to offer local corporations onsite access to our degree programs relevant to their industry as well as specialized training suited to their organizational objectives.
