Marquette University and Everspring have announced an expansion of their partnership to include the new online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) completer program. Everspring, a leading provider of higher education technology solutions and services, will provide marketing assistance, enrollment support and student services support to help promote the program, grow enrollments and support students to successful program completion.
The nationally ranked undergraduate business program has a focus on applied learning, exposure to global perspectives and the promotion of ethical business practices. The new online BSBA completer program, which will be the university’s first bachelor’s degree completion program to be offered online, will provide the benefits of a undergraduate business degree in a flexible online format for students who wish to return to school to finish their bachelor’s degree.
“Marquette is committed to expanding educational opportunity for those who need it most,” Marquette University Provost Kimo Ah Yun said. “Our new online BSBA completer program will allow non-traditional students and working professionals with college credit to advance their education and careers by completing a bachelor’s degree in a way that fits into their lives. Everspring’s support is vital to helping us identify and reach those students, enroll them in the program and ensure they graduate.”
Online Degree Completer Program Helps Meet Need According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment demand in business and finance is experiencing above average growth, with an additional 5% expected growth from 2019–2029. This growth makes the BSBA degree a smart investment for individuals with associate degrees looking to obtain a bachelor’s degree, or for those who have previously pursued, but have not yet completed, a bachelor’s degree. The online BSBA completer program will begin enrolling students in January 2022.
“Marquette’s new online BSBA completer program is directly aligned with Everspring’s mission to expand access to high quality programs by bringing them to a broad range of learners,” said Beth Hollenberg, president and co-founder of Everspring. “It is increasingly important for universities to expand beyond the typical four-year college experience and provide flexible options for students with some credit but no degree and who want to advance their education or upskill in their careers. The online BSBA completer is a terrific avenue for that, and Everspring is excited to help the program launch and grow.”
