The Digital Transformation Consortium brings together mid-Missouri businesses to address the critical need for continuing education focused on digital technologies. Missouri businesses struggle to recruit and retain employees with the digital technology skillsets needed and many current employees are in need of opportunities to upskill to today's evolving technologies. Consortium members will work with MU Extension and Engagement (MUEXT) to identify the gaps in digital technology training needed for their employees to stay competitive in an ever-shifting world.

    Benefits

    Founding members of the Digital Transformation Consortium will have access to enroll an unlimited number of employees in the three pilot course at no-cost to them through 2022 and will receive member rates for these courses after 2022. These courses are covered by a MO- GEER grant for the first year. Founding members, with MUEXT support, will determine the structure of the Consortium and membership costs for future members.

    Consortium members will meet quarterly to provide feedback on current course offerings and advise MUEXT on digital transformation needs, which will guide future continuing education course development. Funding for future courses will be determined by members. Members will also have the opportunity to fund the development of specific digital trainings to meet their needs.
