San Diego State University College of Extended Studies Partners with Global Knowledge
SDSU’s computer science department has approved 45 Global Knowledge courses for credit. Further, the university has also agreed to provide SDSU computer science students and faculty access to up to five online courses from Global Knowledge per semester, providing flexibility and choice to those students in developing their course curriculum. Through this agreement, some students may qualify for tuition reimbursement funding offered by individual companies. Other programs are being reviewed for other future course offerings.
Global Knowledge provides a wide array of training and software support solutions or IT professionals worldwide. Through its Blended Learning Solutions™, the company empowers customers with choice, allowing them to determine when, where, and how corporations and individuals want their training programs designed and delivered. The classes, which began in March, will be held in locations across the nation, as well as through Global Knowledge’s Virtual Classroom e-Learning and Self-Paced e-Learning Programs.
“We are excited about the partnership with Global Knowledge because it will help SDSU’s College of Extended Studies expand its offering of IT courses and allow students to earn credit for training courses,” said William Byxbee, dean of SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. “We know this will help the working adult because many employers will only provide tuition reimbursement for successfully completing credit classes.”
“Global Knowledge is pleased with San Diego State University’s accreditation of selected courses as delivered through Classroom Learning, Virtual Classroom e-Learning and Self-Paced e-Learning,” says Clay E. Shaw, director of alliances for Global Knowledge. “The university’s recognition of our course quality, flexibility of offerings, and commitment to customer results exemplifies Global Knowledge’s position in the marketplace as a leading provider of IT education solutions.”
