Employers

The partnership between Middlesex Community College and local employers is longstanding and strong – and it works both ways. Together, we are creating a better community, with closer alignment between education and workforce needs, greater engagement of our neighbors with the arts and cultural events, and sparks to ignite a lifelong love of learning at any age.

Middlesex is a vital resource for employers in areas such as…

  • Workforce development and corporate education, with customized, cost-effective programs for their employees
  • Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Programs, offering assistance in applying for grants
  • Biotechnology, placing virtually all of our students in biotech jobs and being a resource partner for the Massachusetts Biotechnology Education Foundation
  • Job candidates who possess both the content skills and the employability skills – communications, collaboration, critical thinking – to contribute to business success
  • Internship and co-op students, providing an early introduction to students who may become prospective employees
  • The Transition Program, where students with significant learning disabilities split the week between specialized coursework and unpaid internship placements at local businesses
  • Historic homes and other campus venues that can be rented for business meetings, weddings, showers and other events

 Employers are a valued collaborator with Middlesex via…

  • Membership on college advisory boards
  • Business insights that influence scholastic programming, so we can embed the skills students need into our coursework
  • Internship and co-op opportunities that allow students to gain hands-on experience in their chosen field while still in school
  • Financial support through the Middlesex Community College Foundation
  • Strategic partnerships that open doors to students, faculty and administrators so they can experience relevant, on-the-job situations and gain the knowledge necessary to prepare for specific careers

With our business partners, we are advancing the economic growth and vitality of our community – and making a real difference in the lives of those we teach and employ throughout their careers.
