Great Lakes International University emerges at a time when the workplace is complex, challenging and ambiguous, calling for an infusion of confident, cross-skilled and open-minded youth into the workforce. Rising to this call Great Lakes International University launches a re-imagined pedagogy offering an ideal cross-disciplinary learning experience, critical to succeed in today’s workplace. Our program design teams core business concepts and digital economy curricula with a balance of liberal arts courses to make our students the intellectual equivalent of tri-athletes – the ultimate fit for industry demands.
The concept of intellectual tri-athletes implies that, firstly, they would be equipped with soft skills, linguistic abilities and be capable of speaking intelligently about society, the arts, and life. The second aspect is strength in their core disciplines armed with specializations in one or more new economy skills. The third is an attitude of problem-solving that derives from our teaching style, where the focus is on adapting and optimizing solutions for situations.
