Educational Benefits from CSU

Jeffrey keeps talking about going back to school and taking some classes to get his CPA or CMA, but it's so hard to fit classes into his already busy schedule. Plus there's the cost involved in taking classes. So far, all he's done is talk about it.

It's probably the same for most people. That's why Columbia Southern University wants businesses to learn about the benefits of becoming CSU Learning Partners. It doesn't cost anything for businesses to sign up, and there's no obligation, but by partnering with CSU, companies can offer their employees access to CSU's online degree and certificate programs, at a discounted tuition rate. Courses are flexible, designed to fit into busy schedules. CSU students never have to miss work, family activities, or the things that are important to them. Spouses and children are also eligible to take advantage of the courses and discounts.

It sounds like a positive partnership for everyone involved. Companies can offer these benefits to their employees with no contract, commitment or cost to the company. Employees have the opportunity to further their education in a more affordable and flexible way, and the companies get better qualified and happier employees.
