A Modern Student System to Help Bridge the Gap from Education to Occupation
Higher education has changed significantly over the past two decades. Decreased funding combined with increasing enrollment costs and greater pressure for a variety of skillsets as students move from education to occupation have put significant pressure on higher education institutions to find new ways to help students achieve success. Current systems are rigid and inflexible, making it difficult for colleges and universities to embrace new learning models and engage students throughout their education experience.
With this in mind, Workday has delivered a modern student system designed for the way universities and colleges work, preparing them for today and tomorrow, helping transform the way they recruit, service, and retain their students, ultimately equipping them to pursue meaningful career paths.
