Fortune 500 Firms Team with NYU-Poly to Offer Employees High-Tech Degrees
Booz Allen Hamilton and ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) have joined the Enterprise Learning arm of Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly), a move that enables worldwide employees to earn master’s degrees in strategic, high-tech fields--bioinformatics, cyber security, and computer, electrical engineering, industrial, and manufacturing engineering, as well as organizational behavior, among others.
Booz Allen and ManTech join a roster of other corporate partners, whose global employees enroll in online graduate programs at NYU-ePoly, the school's online unit, currently serving more than 1,500 students in highly demanding, advanced studies. Among current corporate partners are AT&T, Goldman Sachs, SAIC, and Northrop Grumman.
In earning NYU-Poly's cyber security master’s degree, for example, employees access the school's virtual laboratory, known as VITAL, where they perform hands-on experiments to reinforce concepts delivered during virtual lectures. Online students participate in real-time and e-discussions stimulated by chat, texting, forums, and other media. A dedicated “success manager” helps them adapt to their online environment. Technical support is available around the clock. This year, U.S. News & World Report ranked NYU-Poly among the 10 Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs.
“We are delighted to welcome Booz Allen and ManTech,” said Robert Ubell, vice president of Enterprise Learning. “Top personnel will undoubtedly emerge at the forefront of fields essential for company growth, as well as advancing their own careers.”
