179: Career Services for Life - with Peter Cohen, President, University of Phoenix

179: Career Services for Life - with Peter Cohen, President, University of Phoenix

Welcome back to America's leading higher education podcast! This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #58. In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome Peter Cohen, President, University of Phoenix!  According to Peter, the future is about microbursts of learning - which will change modalities, time frames, and degree expectations for all.  Because careers will span longer than they used to, career colleges (and all colleges) need to do MORE than offer degree-based education.  Hear Peter talk about how educational curriculum is the same, by and large, across the country, so it's the commitment to student service, infrastructure, and job placement that will separate institutions.  UoP offers "Career Services for Life (TM)" which is their key differentiator.  Career placement is one of the areas that will help regain public trust in higher education!

 Peter Cohen is the eighth president of the University of Phoenix. He previously served as executive vice president of McGraw-Hill Education. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Redlands.  Cohen is focused on further accelerating the University-wide transformation in service of its vision to be recognized as the most trusted provider of career-relevant higher education for working adults. He brings to the University a deep understanding of the potential for technology to improve the quality of education—an understanding he has developed through a career focused on innovation in the service of students and improved learning outcomes.
