The University of Texas at El Paso’s College of Business Administration (CoBA) is collaborating with ADP to create and implement the ADP HCM Academy (Human Capital Management) at the UTEP College of Business Administration.
The academy, which launches in fall 2016, was created to help interested University students expand their knowledge of practice and theory of HCM, the concept where investment in employees could unlock their potential and build a better workforce.
The academy “is a natural extension of our already strong relationship” with UTEP, said Terry McGreehan, vice president and general manager of ADP in El Paso. “Our mutual commitment to the talented and skilled people of the El Paso community can only mean greater long-term success for students of UTEP and associates of ADP.”
College of Business Administration faculty and ADP management have developed the curriculum for the academy that also will include a speaker series, real-world applications, and discussions of corporate experiences.
In support of the Academy, ADP will provide CoBA with access to a special testing environment of ADP Vantage HCM, the company’s cloud human capital management solution. This will enable professors and students to gain practical, hands-on experience with ADP Vantage HCM, which provides global businesses with human resources, recruitment, talent management, benefits, time and labor and analytics solutions.
ADP will also provide human and technological resources to the academy, which will be housed in UTEP’s Business Administration Building.
Vantage is leveraged by more than 350 large U.S. based employers to support their human capital strategy.
Students can earn an academic certificate through their participation. Some graduates may earn full-time jobs or a paid internship at ADP, which provides HCM software and services to more than 630,000 businesses in more than 100 countries.
