Welcome to the 2U Blog!
Since 2008, all of us at 2U have worked to create exceptional programs, and we are proud of the incredible results the faculty and students have achieved. On this blog, we publish posts from 2U executives, employees and leaders from our partner schools; share research about the outcomes of our high-quality web-based educational programs; and share a bit about what it's like to work at 2U. (We definitely do not work with jerks!)
As of today, 2U works with ten graduate programs at eight universities. We also partner with eleven undergraduate consortium and affiliate schools to offer Semester Online. All of our programs stand on our five pillars: dynamic course content, live classes, real-world experiences, global networking and dedicated support.
Here are just a few examples of how 2U's programs are changing lives:
- MBA@UNC graduated its first class in July 2013. One of the students took their courses from an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, and 61 percent of the graduating class received a promotion or changed jobs while in the program.
- The MSW@USC has more than 2,000 students and is the largest MSW program in the country. The oldest student is 77 years old! A few of our first students shared with us how much the program meant to their lives and their careers.
- One of our oldest programs, Nursing@Georgetown has enrolled more than 1,100 students. Here you can watch videos of two nursing students explaining how the program has impacted their lives, and see a visualization of the 700+ students around the United States.
The above highlights are only a few of the stories uncovered over the past five years, and we look forward to sharing much more with you in the future. Make sure you stay connected with us via our website and company blog, and don't forget to connect with us on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook!
