Abstract: This paper explores the growing need for post-secondary education as preparation for today’s jobs in the United States and the shift in delivery format that may be necessary to serve this new market of non-traditional students. Issues that factor into the design of a new approach include the unique challenges faced by non-traditional students, the shifting economic demands for modern businesses, and the need for businesses to rely on higher education providers to provide qualified employees to remain competitive. Going forward higher education institutions will need to consider all of these issues, as well as the shifting growth in enrollment trends, in order to build and deliver meaningful programs to a more diverse audience.
