Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 30, 2012
Barker Educational Services Team (BEST) is pleased to announce a new enrollment partnership with Webber International University located in Babson Park, Florida, and St. Andrews University, formerly known as St. Andrews Presbyterian College, located in Laurinburg, North Carolina. St. Andrews is a branch of Webber International University, and Webber is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Under the partnership, which began in June of 2012, BEST will manage all of the advertising, enrollment and student services activities for the online programs at both the Florida and North Carolina locations. BEST has another client, Iowa Central Community College Online, for which it provides the same comprehensive set of services at the associate’s degree level. The new partnership with Webber and St. Andrews provides a logical complement to the program offerings at Iowa Central Online, as both institutions offer bachelor’s completion tracks for online students.
Todd Prince, President of BEST had the following to say about the new partnership, "We are all really excited about this new relationship. Webber and St. Andrews have great programs and strong leaders who really 'get it'. We know from experience that the president of a client institution is critical to the success of a new online campus. We are honored to have been selected as the team that will help them to grow."
Todd went on to say "This partnership provides us with another opportunity as well; many of our graduates at Iowa Central ask us for guidance on where to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Now we have two great educational opportunities for them!"
Dr. Keith Wade, the president of Webber International University added, "Once you admit that you’re not great at everything, it empowers you to work towards becoming the best in the world at the things you do really, really well. What Webber is really, really good at is producing business leaders. What St. Andrews is really, really good at is producing critical thinkers. What BEST is really, really good at is providing extraordinary service to on-line learners. When you combine these core competencies – superlative education and exceptional student centric service – students win big."
Webber and St. Andrews are currently accepting applicants for the online programs that will begin in the fall of 2012. For more information about applying please visit http://www.webberdegrees.com.
