Trinity College next month will roll out a slate of four courses focused on professional development and executive training, building on the liberal arts college's effort to partner with employers.
The non-credit bearing courses cost between $3,000 and $5,000 per person, according to Trinity, and program durations range from three full days to six once-a-week sessions lasting three hours. They cover business analysis, workplace communication and design, entrepreneurial thinking and executive strategy.
"[The courses] build somewhat on our partnership with Infosys, and how we've combined the liberal arts with tech and business," said Sonia Cardenas, Trinity's vice president of academic affairs and acting dean of the faculty.
Trinity’s Applied Learning Initiative partnership with tech company Infosys provides a five-week business analysis training program for liberal-arts graduates. More than 150 Infosys employees have trained through this program.
Cardenas said Trinity has advertised the new online program mostly to corporations, and said they could serve as a professional development option for employers looking to upskill their workforce.
For the moment it's unclear how long the courses will be part of a pilot program, or how or when administrators will decide whether to continue offering them as a permanent program, Cardenas said. That's mostly because of the uncertainty the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced to both business and higher education.
"We believe it's a good idea," Cardenas said. "[But] it may be that we discover that right now there isn't interest."
