Program Advisory Committee
Career Program Advisory Committee
Employers make a difference in IBMC College’s curriculum
The career fields that IBMC College trains students for are constantly growing and changing — that’s why we look to business leaders to help ensure our programs are always on the cutting-edge. Employers help to review and develop the curriculum of IBMC’s career-training programs, and their feedback guides the lessons that are taught in the classroom. This allows our students to receive up-to-date information on the most relevant technologies and industry trends. Our Program Advisory Committee also gives valuable insight into the skills that employers are looking for in a potential employee.
What role do employers play in IBMC’s Program Advisory Committee?
- Members participate in meetings on campus and often attend program specific breakout sessions, which will help IBMC shape future curriculum.
- The IBMC Program Advisory Committee functions under independent guidelines and convenes bi-annually.
- Members discuss the current hiring market, needs for trained personnel, hiring requirements, career placement, technology trends in the field, and desired employee skill-sets.
- Employers have access to a large network of community leaders from many professions and similar industries.
