In today's fast-moving business world, an educated work force is critical. Staying current in the latest business trends and technology can give a company an edge over the competition.

Choosing an effective undergraduate or graduate program can be one of the most important decisions an employer can help employees make. It's vital to choose a program that allows students to immediately apply what they have learned in the classroom to their jobs.

At Franklin University, the use of faculty members who work in the fields in which they teach provides the hands-on knowledge students and their employers desire. Team-based classroom projects are infused throughout the programs to mirror the workplace. And students learn from each other, as well.

Since the majority of Franklin students are working professionals, they bring knowledge and experience to the classroom.

Other features employers and employees should consider before choosing a degree program include a flexible course schedule, an affordable program that doesn't compromise quality and an institution that places importance on customer service.

Today's student, who often has work and family commitments, demands flexibility in course delivery options (for example, on-site or online classes) as well as choices in course lengths and starting points. They also seek an affordable education from an institution that works to keep tuition increases to a minimum while maintaining academic quality.

And perhaps most important, today's working student is seeking a college that realizes their time is valuable and works to make earning a degree a convenient and rewarding experience. How to reach: Franklin University, (877) 341-6300
