You’ve likely heard the term CareerPath by now. And if you haven’t, you will. It’s the new buzzword on campus. But what is it and what does it mean for you?
The first thing you should know is CareerPath is much more than a buzzword. It’s a multifaceted approach to help Globe University & Minnesota School of Business (GU & MSB) students achieve graduation sooner and in a much more manageable way, both practically and financially.
“Statistics show students are far more likely to graduate when they are enrolled in school full-time. But we know that can be difficult for a majority of today’s students who are also working adults, in many cases with families,” says Dr. Shana Weiss, GU & MSB Academic Dean. “This new model provides our students a structured, more manageable class load, and a clear, guided path to graduation.”
More Manageable Workload, Clear-Cut Schedule
Education should be empowering, not overwhelming. But unfortunately with today’s hectic lifestyle, it can sometimes be both. Many students are now trying to juggle school with work and family life. It can be difficult to manage a full-time load on top of other obligations. The new CareerPath learning model aims to change that.
Beginning in January, GU & MSB will begin offering many classes in six-week sessions within the quarter, giving students the opportunity to take a full-time course load while focusing on fewer subjects at a time—all while receiving the same quality education. The CareerPath model also involves working to establish consistent scheduling options, so students know what to expect and can plan their lives around it. The goal is to give students a clear, guided path from enrollment to graduation.
There will also be a wider selection of hybrid courses, combining hands-on classroom experiences with online learning. Applied learning will remain a staple in the curriculum, providing students the opportunity to apply their classroom skills in real-world settings and connect with local employers.
Take More, Pay Less
In an effort to reward and encourage full-time enrollment, GU & MSB will be reducing tuition further for full-time students, with the exception of those enrolled in the graduate or nursing programs.
Undergraduate students who take 14 or more credits a quarter will now pay 16-percent less than those taking 12-13 credits, and 30-percent less than part-time students.
“After years of offering scholarships to small segments of our students, we are now offering all students the opportunity to lower their tuition, with the added incentive of achieving their degree sooner,” says Jeff Myhre, Globe Education Network CEO. “We believe this tuition reduction will help more students afford their education and move forward with their career path.”
