Faces of WGU

Harris Simmons, President and CEO; Chairman, Zions Bancorporation

WGU fits very neatly into the largest single remaining need in higher education — to provide working adults and rural students the opportunity to pursue the college degree they’ve always wanted and needed, on a schedule they can manage, at a cost they can afford. Because WGU is competency-based, WGU graduates are well-prepared and highly valued.

Zions Bank has been a long-time supporter of WGU. WGU is helping our employees earn high quality degrees while working full-time and caring for their families. Because WGU is competency-based, WGU graduates are well-prepared and highly valued by Zions Bank. In my experience I have found that WGU graduates possess the leading edge business skills and technology proficiency that enables them to instantly add value.
