Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 22, 2006
Drexel University Online, winner of the United States Distance Learning Association's 2006 21st Century Best Practice for Distance Learning Award, recently announced the launch of an online educational partnership with Bio-Imaging Technologies, the world's largest independent provider of medical image management for clinical trials.
Through this educational alliance, Bio-Imaging Technologies employees will have the opportunity to complete an online degree or certificate program through Drexel and receive special tuition rates. Employees can choose from a range of bachelor's, master's, and certificate programs that Drexel offers online in areas such as business, engineering, computer science, computing technology, education, nursing, and information science.
Drexel, which is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of "America's Best National Universities" for 2007, is accredited by the Middle States Association for Colleges and Secondary Schools and its curricula hold the highest level of accreditations from their respective accrediting bodies such as AACSB (Business), NLN and CCNE (Nursing), and ALA (Information Science). Additionally, Drexel's online programs target adult learners and offer the convenience of advancing their skills on their own schedule.
Drexel University Online has been continually expanding its partner network for the past four years. Through a partnership with Drexel, participating corporations, health systems, schools, and professional associations across the United States are able to offer their employees and members such benefits as special tuition rates and career development opportunities, as well as the chance to earn a reputable degree all with the flexibility working professionals need.
"Drexel's partnership program has been such a great success because we are providing companies like Bio-Imaging Technologies with the tools they need to invest in their most valuable asset, their employees," said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director of Drexel University Online. "Drexel is looking forward to a long-lasting working relationship with Bio-Imaging Technologies and looks forward to meeting the educational needs of its employees. Organizations continue to collaborate with Drexel as an academic partner because they know their employees will receive the same quality education through a convenient online format as they would on the University's campus."
