Walmart Newsroom: Walmart's new education benefit puts cap and gown within reach for associates
The following content first appeared on the news page while UMass Global operated under its former name of Brandman University.
Walmart unveiled a new associate education benefit aimed at removing barriers to college and graduation. Brandman University is one of three higher education institutions chosen to provide the benefit.
“Degrees will be offered through the University of Florida, Brandman University and Bellevue University – nonprofit schools selected for their focus and strong outcomes on serving working adult learners,” according to Walmart’s official statement. Arrangements were made in partnership with Guild Education, an education benefits platform that already includes Brandman as an option for other partners in its program.
Walmart made its choices based on affordability, relevance, accessibility and the kind of support students would receive both from Guild and the universities.
