    Cohort Degree Program Design

    Students in PROgram cohort delivery model follow a sequential program with prescribed course offerings. Fellow cohort students will participate in the same courses for the duration of the degree program. The cohort style of learning provides students with the opportunity to study together, build networks and develop support systems.

    Cohort Degree Outcomes

    The PROgram cohort delivery model has been successful. We have seen at 96% retention rate for students completing the degree programs. The opportunity also has benefits for the organizations retention strategy. Support of employees in the program, deferred or discounted costs and convenience of onsite delivery points to an investment in the employee which provides overall job satisfaction and leads to increased productivity.
