The UTSA College of Business has partnered with Chase to offer customized business training to its employees.
The first executive education programming provided project management instruction to 67 Chase employees. The program will continue this fall with a business writing and communication course.
“We were looking for an opportunity to train our employees for the roles they aspire to, not just the roles they’re in now,” said Steven R. Yates, manager of the Chase work centers at Westover Hills and Stone Oak. “We chose UTSA because we want our employees to benefit from a very high caliber of teaching, and because UTSA is already one of our community partners.”
The UTSA College of Business established a formal partnership with Chase in 2013 to assist the company with two key initiatives: help drive talent to Chase to meet the company’s hiring demands; and develop customized programs to enhance advancement opportunities for its employees.
Since then, the college has focused on enhancing Chase’s visibility to business students and on streamlining the recruitment process to help align its undergraduate and graduate students with professional opportunities at Chase.
“This new program embodies the college’s executive education mission, which is to teach people something today that they can use tomorrow,” said Cheryl Linthicum, associate dean for MBA programs and executive education. “It has become clear that this type of customizable on-site business training is a win for employers, employees and UTSA.”
This program is just one component of the executive education programming at UTSA. The college’s primary executive program, the Executive MBA, is a highly integrated, 21-month program that offers an exciting opportunity for experienced managers, professionals and rising leaders to strengthen business fundamentals and acquire advanced skills and knowledge that are immediately applicable to career and personal growth.
