Partnerships with employers: how Alliance institutions are readying graduates for the job market

Alliance universities work hand-in-glove with globally-renowned employers across the country to ensure our graduates leave with skills that allow them to step seamlessly into working life. As part of the UA Powering Jobs mini campaign, we’re demonstrating how our industry and employer partnerships equip Alliance students for their careers, and to navigate the ever-changing job market.
