The Training Model

Our learning approach for the Financials Transformation Program utilizes multiple learning styles. This model works to maximize the effectiveness of learning across campus by leveraging more than just traditional training activities. It encourages the financial user to be self-sufficient and learn to access the appropriate resources available to them.
