Our Difference

FORTIS has Respected Academic Leaders.

Many of our faculty members and administration are academic leaders. As the process of career education grows increasingly complex, they tease out trends, resolve apparent contradictions and pass their findings on to the next generation of great leaders and thinkers.

In the classrooms and training facilities, they translate their latest research findings into practical learning strategies for students. Outside the classroom, they are respected members of their professions, including authors of books, blogs, and academic papers and board members of directors of major professional service organizations.
