Workforce Readiness

Empowering Employees for Academic Success.

LearnFirst fosters corporate relationships and workforce readiness by reimagining tuition reimbursement to eliminate corporate partner risk. Students and corporate partners pay no money to enroll in UMUC courses. Corporate partners pay only after the student successfully passes their course.

UMUC Ventures also offers customized services to help corporations and government organizations deliver high-impact, low-risk continuing education and retraining opportunities to their workforce.
