UIW Presents Triple Helix Career Panel Discussion
Higher Education, Government, Industry

San Antonio – The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) Office of Research and Graduate Studies presents Triple Helix Career Panel Discussion - Higher Education, Government, and Industry at 5:30 p.m., Monday, April 24 in UIW’s Rosenberg Sky Room.

Over the last decade, globalization has overwhelmed an increasing number of professionals, challenging them to rethink basic paradigms on what it takes to succeed in the global era of economic development and social transformation. As the marketplace changes and the workforce becomes increasingly competitive, more and more people are discovering a bachelor's degree is no longer enough - an advanced degree is necessary for moving ahead in their current career, or switching fields’ altogether.

However, one of the biggest issues in graduate education is the employability of students with graduate degrees. Clear career options for graduate degree holders are often lacking and employers play an important role in strengthening graduate education. They must clarify expectations of graduate recipients and help convey industry needs to graduate schools.

This panel discussion will explore what employers expect of graduate degree holders, the skills they need and how we create opportunities for graduate degree holders to stay and work in San Antonio.
