Oklahoma Wesleyan University’s School of Graduate & Professional Studies has partnered with MindEdge Learning® to provide more than 350 affordable certifications, badges, and training courses in a new program called OKWU Pro, set to launch on August 15.
Designed for students who are looking to sharpen their professional skill set and boost their resumes, this new partnership enables OKWU to greatly increase its portfolio of online courses and certificates. Students will be able to pursue their professional goals in a program built around their schedule, allowing them to continue working full-time while earning the certifications needed to achieve their goals. These new options allow GPS to provide a complete range of adult learning options, including undergraduate and graduate degree programs, that are 100% online.
Some of these new program areas include Agile Management, Cybersecurity, Creativity and Innovation, Data Analytics, Nonprofit Management, Six Sigma, Women in Business, and many more. Some courses can be completed in as little as 1.5 hours, while others offer more than 80 hours of integrated study, with costs as low as $39.
OKWU Pro Gives Adult Learners Another Option for Continuing Education
“These new offerings represent our way of serving every person in our community,” said Dr. Jim Dunn, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University. “It provides a cost-effective way to earn a certificate or badge that can be used to increase their employability.”
Inflation hits hardest on those that earn the least. Dr. Brett Andrews, senior vice president and dean of Graduate & Professional Studies added, “Now a college education is affordable in reach for everyone. Both individuals who want to earn more and employers seeking low-cost training solutions can find solutions at OKWU.”
