  • Educational Opportunities for Your Employees 

    Personalized Learning offers your employees an accredited, online education option that focuses on the professional skills needed in today’s businesses. Through competency-based education degree programs, your employees will advance based on their true grasp of the program’s learning outcomes, not on how much time is spent in a classroom.

    These rigorous programs allow students to progress at their own pace and complete lessons in the order that best meet their learning style. Personalized Learning is an ideal match for your motivated and independent employees who are looking for an education that is responsive to today’s business world. That’s because the curriculum is guided by an advisory board of business community members regularly providing insight into current professional development and hiring needs.

    • Will a Personalized Learning bachelor’s degree meet standards for master’s degrees at other institutions?  Yes. NAU’s Personalized Learning programs meet both the accreditation requirements and the transcript format requirements for respected master’s programs nationwide.
    • Are Personalized Learning degrees quality degrees? Yes. While Personalized Learning programs offer flexibility, students must be very motivated to be successful in these rigorous programs. Progress is contingent upon clearly demonstrating an understanding of the curriculum, which cannot be replaced by memorization skills or extra credit opportunities.
