New England College of Business and Finance Offers Special Tuition Benefit for Subscribers of Compliance Week

Limited Offer Applies to All NECB Programs, Including Unique Ethics and Compliance Degree

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) - New England College of Business and Finance (NECB), a Boston-based college that offers high-quality, business-focused online degree programs, is offering special tuition pricing to subscribers of Compliance Week, a print magazine and electronic newsletter on corporate governance, risk, and compliance. Effective immediately, Compliance Week subscribers who apply to NECB before August 9, 2010 are eligible for a 20 percent reduction to the College's already affordably priced tuition rate. This unique value add benefit to Compliance Week subscribers applies to all degree programs offered through NECB, including associate's, bachelor's, and master's degree programs. 

"The tuition benefit is our way of showing appreciation for the subscribers of Compliance Week who share a common interest with the College," said Dr. Carol Anderson, Vice President of Academic Affairs at New England College of Business and Finance. "The kinds of issues that draw readers to the magazine and newsletter are the same kinds of issues we address in our business-focused degree programs, especially in the first ever master's degree program that concentrates on ethics and compliance," she said. 

NECB's Master of Science in Business Ethics and Compliance (MBE) closely examines social responsibility. The first-of-its-kind in the nation degree uses both traditional instruction and a case method approach to teach what makes good governance and ethical conduct. Courses such as the "Culture of Ethics and Competition" are balanced with courses like "Regulations and Regulators: A Practical Application." Graduates also learn to spot problems in their companies before those problems get bigger. With the expected overhaul in financial regulations, the number of compliance jobs in this country is likely to grow exponentially. In today's downsized job market, NECB graduates will gain a potential edge for those kinds of jobs. Students who apply for NECB's MBE or the College's Master of Science in Finance (MSF) degree program are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). 

All of NECB's degree programs are recognized by the country's oldest regional accreditation body: New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). They are offered exclusively online, and include a variety of online student support services, as well as a robust online library that now includes access to the Boston Regional Library System. Master's degree programs offered at NECB can be completed online in 15 months. 

Compliance Week subscribers interested in taking advantage of the 20 percent reduced tuition rate, may visit www.necb.edu/complianceweek or call 1-800-997-1673. The special benefit applies only to subscribers who apply to NECB before August 9.
