In 2001, we joined forces with Aetna, a national leader of health plans and related benefits, to provide a specially designed educational program for their customer service employees, delivered entirely online. Since then, we have grown the program, providing a customized curriculum in a flexible format so students may earn a certificate, an associate degree, a bachelor's degree or a master's degree.
