Our Educational Philosophy
Our educational philosophy is founded on
success and career development.
Thousands of men and women who have attended Ranken since 1907 have earned certificates, diplomas and degrees. Others have taken advantage of Ranken’s courses to update their skills, improve their chances of promotion in their current careers, and make themselves personally more marketable.
The formula for a student’s success is based upon three equal components:
- Technical Education
- General Education
- Work Ethic
The technical component consists of the theoretical and practical application of modern technology in any of several programs.
The general education component assists students in developing strong communication skills, scientific and mathematical reasoning, computer literacy, an understanding of business, and an appreciation of the individual’s role in society—all of which prepare students for career advancement.
Finally, Ranken treats students as professionals from day one. The work ethic component teaches the values, attitudes and behaviors sought by current employers—the qualities that are likely to lead to successful careers.
