Academic study is only one part of what we see as complete development for the student. The Career Learning Academy (CLA) provides a variety of learning opportunities towards developing the soft skills necessary in verbal and written communication, leadership, team building, time and resource management, networking and public speaking. Furthermore, students will learn to reflect on their own personal attitudes and cultural values which influence their behavior and relationships. These are the human skills which all successful managers possess and use to achieve results, in any organization.
