Many working professionals want to return to school, but do not have the time to attend classes on a traditional college campus. Online degree programs allow individuals to work toward a degree on their own schedule from the comfort of their own homes.
Recently, Post University announced that it will restructure its district schools to better serve its distance learners. An undergraduate Post University, along with a School of Education, School of Business and School of Public Service will be established to improve the academic integrity of the institution.
"This innovative hiring model has resulted in a team of creative, experienced leaders who are capable of guiding the development of a curriculum that can meet the changing needs of students and employers," said Ronald Ogrodnik, president of Post University. "Our Academic Program Managers understand the challenges our students face both in the classroom and in their daily lives."
Online education enrollments now surpass traditional college enrollments by a five-to-one ratio, according to the Sloan Consortium. The demand for internet-based degree programs continues to grow among distance learners looking to finish their education.
