We know that there is always going to be a need for well-educated employees. That said, we are confident that the countless tradition-oriented and conventional schools, colleges and universities, around the world, are more than capable of educating future employees without our help. While we have delivered some programs for a few undergraduate students who insisted – younger men and women seeking programs that were a departure from those offered by a Harvard, or a Cambridge, or any of the thousands of tradition-oriented schools that dot the globe - we do not offer undergraduate programs as a rule.
The programs we do offer, however, have one thing in common - they were developed to meet the needs of current and/or future employers rather than employees. To this end, the programmatic focus is on the needs of the learner rather than those of the institution; the IUE does not key on the tradition of putting a purported expert in front of a classroom to impart his or her understanding of the theory of a subject … pitting their expertise and wisdom in rote fashion, against practical, real-world and real-time skills and understanding.
With the homogenization of higher education, in general, the IUE, from the outset, chose to differentiate itself from all other institutions of higher learning by clearly stating that the focus of all credentials programs is to fill the gap that has always existed in our education system … that of providing for the unique education needs of the employer.
Our distinction is, the IUE offers only those programs and courses with a clear focus on the major components of entrepreneurship and entreprenology. Entrepreneurship is the base upon which the discipline of the employer is built. Entreprenology - the concept originated and developed by Dr. James R. Omps and his colleagues, expands upon that base – takes it to a much higher level.
The result is a range of programs targeting, and effectively providing for, the education and training needs unique to those who create the clear majority of jobs … the employers. If the goal of the learner is to prepare himself or herself to become an employer, or if it is simply to learn to think and/or make important decisions from the employer’s perspective, then the values, programs, courses and options that spring from this dynamic discipline, are key to the creation, adoption or adaptation of the most critical proficiencies they will need … a functional understanding of value-creation, and the ability to either discover or develop an entreprenological mindset. They then learn to apply the core qualities to their professional and personal lives. The eventual outcome … success!
