Employers make a difference in IBMC College’s curriculum
IBMC Program Advisory
Company leaders help to develop the curriculum of IBMC’s career-training programs. The feedback from employers guides the lessons that are taught in the classroom, allowing students to be up to date regarding the most relevant technologies and industry trends. Our Program Advisory Committee also gives great insight into the exact skills that employers are looking for in a potential employee.
The purpose of the Program Advisory Committee:
The IBMC Program Advisory Committee is comprised of professionals, employers and IBMC graduates who are employed in their field of study. The goal of the Committee is to help the College achieve program-related objectives. It is the intent of the College to maintain current knowledge of employment needs in the community, and the surrounding areas.
Members are invited by staff members of IBMC College and include those in fields of accounting, business administration, cosmetology, healthcare and law. Traditionally, Program Advisory Committee meetings have representatives from local businesses, businesses that host students during their clinical practicum or externship experience, and companies that hire IBMC graduates.
