Education That Means Business

Kristy Milien had a dream to work in New York City, and she executed perfectly. As president of the National Retail Federation student club, one of her signature accomplishments was organizing a student trip to the retail industry’s biggest event in the city, The Big Show. While there, she introduced herself to her future employer, Macy’s.

Career success takes focus, talent, education, strategic decisions and hard work – but sometimes, bringing all of these assets to the right place at the right time leads to a perfect breakthrough. Every resource and opportunity is designed to empower you to realize your career goals. We do, in fact, have a plan for your professional success: It’s our award-winning Blueprint learning model.
