“Within the next 15 years, nearly 15% of the global workforce may need to switch jobs.”
–McKinsey Global Institute
The job market is increasingly dynamic for both employers and employees. The needs of employers change with new technology and new market demands. And, employees must change too in order to keep up with the skills employers need, competition from new entrants into the job market, and changes in technology.
A college degree used to be the key to a long-term, stable career. Now it’s mainly one of many tools for gaining entry into the job market.

Many traditional models of education put the the learner in a passive role, as a recipient of knowledge. No wonder knowledge and skill retention is normally so low! Instead, NuPaths designs learning so that students are active participants. Research shows that active learning increases engagement and leads to much better retention of new knowledge.
Instructors in an active learning classroom spend less time behind the podium and more time consulting and leading group activities.
Students do more than just listen. You’ll read, write, discuss, solve problems and be engaged in your personalized learning.
And, employers will see the benefits of active learning. The nature of work today is more collaborative, technical and global. Organizations need employees who are flexible, collaborative, creative, and technical.
