An Increasingly Popular Job Perk: Online Education

The Chronicle of Higher Education
June 2nd, 2015


Southern New Hampshire University has become the latest institution to team up with a major employer to make online courses a benefit of employment.
A partnership between Southern New Hampshire and Anthem Inc., a health-insurance company, will allow some 55,000 Anthem employees to earn associate or bachelor’s degrees through the university’s College for America, a competency-based assessment program.
The announcement is one of several recent deals between a college and a corporation that will expand higher-education opportunities for employees at no or reduced cost, following a high-profile deal, announced last year, between Starbucks and Arizona State University. On Monday, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced a similar arrangement with Strayer University.
