Partnerships Our Promise Is Greater Opportunity

Employee Opportunity Starts Here

Your employees are the lifeblood of your business. The more education and skills they acquire, the more they can help your organization succeed. At WGU, we provide equitable and inclusive higher education opportunities for your employees to hone their skills and make a bigger impact at work. When employees are improving and gaining education, your business reaps the benefits, just as morale increases. Your employees matter. Help them feel that by investing in their education—then see it pay dividends.


Bridging the Gap From Talent to Opportunity

Talent is universal, but opportunity is not. That's where we come in. Show your employees that you value their future by providing access to higher education through WGU. We believe everyone deserves access to a quality degree. It's why our mission is to change lives for the better by creating pathways to opportunity. The surest way to opportunity is education. The transformative effect of education impacts individuals, families, communities, and workplaces. Our mission is to remove barriers to educational attainment so more people have access to life-changing learning. As an employer, you play a big part in helping us fulfill that mission.
