Robertson is the School of New Work. Our vision is for everyone to have a good life through a prosperous and fulfilling career. Robertsonâ€™s mission is to empower our students with the most relevant training and up-to-date industry insights to thrive in a modern work environment.
At Robertson, motivated students can advance their education by studying online or via hybrid delivery - 10 or 20 hours per week. The Robertson team assists students while in program and after graduation to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed in a new career. Robertson team members are guides for our students on their career path as they navigate their college and educational experiences during their time at the College.
Having a deep understanding of the demands of the modern workforce is integral to what we offer our learners. That is why internally, we place such value on building a work culture that is flexible and adaptive to the changing world of work. We also seek out diversity in our team. We #CelebrateEverything and encourage team members to take paid time off to celebrate their cultural, religious, and spiritual holidays. Our team is intentionally talent-dense - our strength lies in the differences in backgrounds and expertise that we each bring to the table.
