Drexel University Online Expands Partnership Network
Working professionals know the benefits of continued education: larger salaries, career advancement and a deeper knowledge of their field, among others. It can be difficult, however, to make the financial commitment to go back to school.
The Drexel University Online (DUO) Educational Partnership Program is designed to make the continued pursuit of higher education more manageable and convenient. DUO currently partners with more than 1,000 corporations, health systems, school districts and professional associations around the world, allowing employees, and sometimes, their immediate family members, to take advantage of significant tuition savings on Drexel’s more than 150 online programs, in addition to other benefits.
“At Drexel University Online, we’re committed to helping working professionals invest in themselves and their careers,” said Susan Aldridge, PhD, president of Drexel University Online. “Education can make all the difference in helping professionals reach their career and personal goals, and we’re delighted to be able to offer them the opportunity to advance their future through our vast network of partners.”
Employee tuition assistance can also have many benefits for companies themselves, including reduced attrition rates and improved leadership skills in employees.
“I am excited to partner with Drexel University Online and be able to offer this great educational opportunity to our employees and their family members at a discount. At CARDONE, keeping up with technology is one of our competitive advantages and this educational partnership will help keep our employees on the leading edge and enable us to accelerate our focus on innovation,” said Christin Cardone McClave, chief people officer of CARDONE Industries, Inc.
