The demands of the global economy have transformed from a manual-labor based economy to a skills-based economy. Organizations and employees must increase their skills and knowledge to remain relevant in today’s technologically-driven business world. The Professional Education Center (PEC) at Roger Williams University offers programs that are designed for high-potential businesses, hospitals, government managers, career changers, and entrepreneurs. Created to meet the needs of the ever-changing global market, our portfolio of non-credit professional certificate programs, sessions, and seminars provides individuals and organizations with a targeted and flexible means to advance, change, or refocus career goals and position their organizations for future growth. The PEC also offers an array of personal development programs for lifelong learners.
The PEC offers flexible formats, employing state of the art practices; ranging from intensive seminars focused on areas of interest, to professional certificates covering a range of topics that are innovative, integrated, relevant, and competency based, to personal development programs available year-round. We also can partner with organizations to provide custom solutions to increase their human capital and to address specific business challenges and industry needs.
The PEC represents a commitment to state of the art and cutting edge practices, customized content, flexible formats, demonstrated competencies, and a focus on applied learning, within the context of the organization and industry.
In an economy increasingly driven by knowledge, innovation, and results, the PEC is uniquely positioned to access thought leaders, leading practitioners, and market experts from throughout the Rhode Island area, as well as faculty from across the University to contribute to the design and delivery of custom learning solutions.
The PEC is an outstanding opportunity to find convenience, quality, and affordability from a private institution.
