Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) July 08, 2014

Ivy Tech Community College has partnered with McDonalds in order to develop a degree crosswalk with the companys Management Development Program.

The new partnership will allow McDonalds restaurant and Mid-Management employees in the Management Development Program to transfer up to 21 credit hours of courses taken at Hamburger University toward an associate degree or up to 15 credit hours toward a technical certificate. Additionally, if students have previously attended another regionally-accredited college or university, those credits may also transfer to Ivy Tech.

The program will be offered online allowing any McDonalds restaurant and Mid-Management employee in the U.S. enrolled in the McDonalds Management Development Programs to take advantage of this unique crosswalk option with Ivy Tech Community College, one of the largest community college systems of its kind.

Over the last decade, Ivy Tech has developed the most accessible, online education program available anywhere, and were excited to now offer our program to students in the McDonalds Management Development Programs, said Dr. Jeff Pittman, Vice President of Corporate College and Online Education. This is a unique opportunity for thousands of McDonalds management personnel to complete their college degree at a time that is convenient for them. Ivy Techs flexibility is the perfect fit for working adults with demanding home and work schedules.

The flexibility of online delivery will allow students participating in the crosswalk option to complete coursework on their schedule, whether that be during the day, evening or weekends. Ivy Techs classes are also small in size which allows students to form great relationships with their peers and professors, even in online classes.

Students enrolled in the McDonalds Management Development Program and participating in this crosswalk option will each be assigned to an advisor to assist with scheduling and answering questions. Ivy Techs team of advisors will not only help students with their educational and career goals, but also help design an academic plan that best fits each students needs. Virtual resources are also available.

Ivy Tech Community College is the states largest public postsecondary institution and the nations largest singly accredited statewide community college system serving nearly 200,000 students annually. Ivy Tech has campuses throughout Indiana. It serves as the states engine of workforce development, offering affordable degree programs and training that are aligned with the needs of its community along with courses and programs that transfer to other colleges and universities in Indiana. It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.
