- Graduate Programs

Kettering Global’s emphasis is on innovative approaches that meet the demands of STEM and business related jobs. According to a study by the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte, there are nearly 600,000 manufacturing jobs in the U.S. that are unfilled because the manufacturing sector cannot find people with the appropriate skill sets (U.S. News and World Report, 2012). Worldwide the need for engineers to meet the demands of society in the future is estimated to be in the millions.
Desirable skills in business include critical thinking, complex problem solving, judgment and decision-making, knowledge of computers and electronics, and active listening (Forbes, 2012). These are precisely the skills a Kettering degree will develop. KGC will meet the demand for these highly skilled and desired professionals through its quality online programs, degrees and certifications.
