The Corporate University, Kent State University at Stark is your organization's partner and can prepare associates for the future economic environment. The best recommendations the lifelong learning professionals at The Corporate University can make is to link your training plan to your strategic business goals, and then work your plan during lean and fat times in your business.


One way to maximize your limited training dollars in a soft economy is to join our affiliate program, The Knowledge Network. Attendees of these highly-ranked programs reap two major benefits.
