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.
