Our combined curriculum opens the door to new opportunities for leaders in all organizations.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, announced today that it has partnered with eCornell, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cornell University, and launched a new comprehensive online curriculum of professional and executive development education programs.
Through the agreement, HCI has extended its education offering with acclaimed eCornell executive, line management, and human resources courses and certificate programs that provide core skills training for today's leaders.
The partnership makes eCornell education available at special prices to HCI's members, and HCI Business Membership and related discounts available to eCornell clients. Common eCornell-HCI seat pricing and a combined license program offer the flexibility of one-stop shopping across a highly scalable, online learning platform to enable easy progression along development paths throughout an organization.
eCornell programs are designed by renowned faculty from Cornell University's highly-rated Johnson Graduate School of Management and its School of Industrial and Labor Relations. All courses are developed by subject-matter experts at the top of their fields, with attention to facilitating skills transfer and personalization of the learning experience.
The addition of eCornell programs expands the Human Capital Institute's best-in-class, award-winning education offerings. HCI is the only professional association focused exclusively on human capital and talent management. Now, HCI's robust education programs provide key executives, line managers, and human capital professionals with even greater access to the newest ideas, most effective tools and best practices in talent acquisition, alignment, engagement, deployment, measurement, retention, and other strategic practices.
"HCI takes a different tact from other organizations that offer human capital education. HCI doesn't believe Human Capital Management is an extension of the human resources function; it is, in fact, a new and critical strategic discipline that requires its own curriculum and toolset, and is important knowledge for every leader in the enterprise," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President & Executive Director. "We are excited by our new partnership with eCornell and the opportunity it provides to offer a wider range of education opportunities to the business and professional community."
"We're pleased to support the Human Capital Institute's education efforts through this partnership," said Chris Proulx, Chief Executive Officer of eCornell. "Our combined curriculum opens the door to new opportunities for leaders in all organizations."
Established and wholly-owned by Cornell University, eCornell has the most comprehensive online, professional, and executive development curriculum offered by any top-20 university in the United States. eCornell provides exceptional online learning experiences tailored for professional and executive development in the areas of strategy, leadership, and management development, human resources, financial management, and hospitality management. Collaboration between Cornell faculty experts and learning and user-experience designers provides for engaging, rigorous, and interactive learning.
