Be Real World Ready

Whether you are looking to advance your career or enter a new field, the Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) School of Continuing and Professional Studies is uniquely prepared to help you reach your goals.

Continuing your education is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and your future. At the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, we know how different an adult learning experience can be, and have the structure to help you succeed, even if you have had challenges in the past.

Supportive faculty and staff understand what it is like to return to school, and have the experience to help you balance obligations, take advantage of new opportunities, and redefine your success. With three convenient locations, excellent resources and accelerated terms, earning a degree or broadening your horizons through short courses or certifications has never been so accessible.

I am fortunate to be enrolled in the innovative Doctoral program in Strategic Leadership at Jefferson. Graduates will be in high demand as experts in the application of integrated systems and leadership practices. We will have sought after experience in the theory, practice, pain, and glory of great leadership. I look forward to the challenge of bringing this experience as a leader to my work and to my great clients.
