We Challenge Your Team Through Skill Development

With the competition to attract and retain a strong, diverse workforce increasing, we know one way to distinguish yourself is through an emphasis on continual development and learning. Our DeVryWorks team listens to help pinpoint where your team’s gaps are and how we might work together to provide solutions to close those gaps.

Our consultative approach is designed to help guide your talent succession plan and then support that plan through consistent check ins and reporting.  Our faculty of professors create skill building frameworks that can mirror what your team might be tackling on the job or in a future role, and our courses are developed with the needs of organizations, departments and industries in mind.

Meet Our Team

Looking for a partner who truly understands your skill development needs and can provide the solutions to back it up shouldn’t be a challenge. Our team of DeVryWorks consultants and DeVry University faculty working together is what sets us apart and helps create unmatched value for our clients. Together we strive to bring real-world expertise to your team—and we use experiential learning coursework to back it up.

We take pride in providing top-tier education, work-readiness programs, and personalized support. Do you have a partner who can do that? Learn more.
