Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 9, 2007
Distance learning services provider Compass Knowledge Group, LLC (Compass) announces the expansion of its existing partnership with Mountain State University (MSU) to include two new online degrees, a Master of Science in Strategic Leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership. These two new programs build on the partnership Compass and MSU established in 2001 to offer MSU's online Bachelor of Science in Administration of Criminal Justice, which has now been modified to become a criminal justice concentration of the organizational leadership degree.
"Mountain State University has demonstrated an understanding and commitment to distance learning," said Compass CEO Dan Devine. "We look forward to continuing to work with them in delivering meaningful education to busy working professionals who otherwise might not be able to continue their education except through an online format."
Compass Knowledge Group and MSU have agreed to a 10-year partnership for the two new degree programs.
"We are happy to expand our relationship with Compass Knowledge Group," said William White, Ed.D., Dean of MSU's School of Leadership and Professional Development. "They have demonstrated their expertise and ability to effectively market programs, recruit students and maintain relationships in the demanding online learning environment. Their mastery of the online arena allows MSU to concentrate on delivering world-class quality degree programs."
Compass is a premier provider of e-learning solutions, supplying distance learning expertise and operational support to assist colleges and universities in market research, marketing, recruitment and retention. The company has undergone significant growth during the past two years, more than doubling the number of employees in its Orlando-based headquarters.
The new programs offered through MSU bring the total number of distance learning programs supported by Compass to 22. Other partnering institutions include Boston University, Eastern Kentucky University, Marylhurst University, Mountain State University, Northwestern University, Portland State University, the University of Cincinnati, and the University of Florida.
