HPU Next—Opportunities in Workforce Development



Is your business competitive?  How do you compare with local, regional, and even global competition? 

A thriving business is one that seizes opportunities to improve the team.  Competitiveness is fueled, in part, by strategic investments in workforce capabilities.

HPU Next, Hawai‘i Pacific University’s workforce development program, offers you a valuable tool to identify areas for competitive upgrade, and an array of custom-tailored professional training courses for your team. 

The specialized programs of HPU Next are offered in many packages, from one day to a semester, and can be delivered to your workplace, or you may bring your team to our convenient downtown Honolulu campus.

Here is a sampling of solutions that await your business when you partner with HPU Next:

Management Information Systems

Is your team current in its knowledge of data management?  Efficient information management using the latest in technology will upgrade the competitiveness of your business.

Project Management

Is your workforce comprised of amateur project managers?  A systematic knowledge of project management will improve your business’ ability to complete projects successfully in less time, with less effort.


Malicious attacks on your information system could be a showstopper for businesses, and it could cost your business in liability.  Computer savvy employees can be trained to reliably protect your business.

Business Analytics and Big Data

A few years ago, business analytics and big data was the exclusive realm of large corporations.  Today, with improved technology, these tools are accessible to medium and small businesses.  Possessing accurate, timely intelligence allows your business to see through the fog and to compete.  Connect your team to our business analytics and big data courses to improve your competitive edge.

Multimedia Presentation Technology for Businesses

Train your employees to create in-house presentations with professional-grade multimedia content.  Improvements in technology have made such presentations within reach of small- and medium-sized businesses.


These are but a sampling of courses we offer.  We also offer a range of professional certificate programs in areas that include: Business Analytics; Global Leadership and Sustainable Development; Nonprofit Management; Software Engineering; Telecommunications Security, and many more.
