New England College of Business and Finance Partners With New England Credit Union Services to Benefit Credit Union Employees

Employees and Family Members Will Receive Significant Savings in Online Tuition

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2010) -  The New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) is pleased to announce a partnership with New England Credit Union Services (NECUS) that creates a college tuition savings opportunity for Credit Union employees and their family members. For over a century, New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) has actively partnered with institutions to help their employees achieve their own educational goals. NECB's high-quality online degree programs offer schedule flexibility at an affordable cost to meet the needs of working adults who must balance work and family obligations with their studies.

With so many people working to enhance career strengths and give themselves a competitive edge in these difficult economic times, this savings benefit comes at a critical time. The partnership with NECB will save NECUS employees and their family members almost half the cost of standard college tuition rates for undergraduate degrees, and a quarter of the cost of standard graduate degree tuition rates.

In addition to the already significant savings that are part of the NECUS/NECB partnership, credit union employees and their family members are eligible to receive the following scholarships:

  • For all new students who enroll by July 5 in a NECB Undergraduate online degree program (Associate's or Bachelor's degree), the College will apply a $500 scholarship to the tuition cost. 
  • For all new students who enroll by July 5 in a NECB Graduate online degree program, the College will apply a $1,000 scholarship to the tuition cost.

"The educational benefits for employees of our existing partner institutions and the extended benefits for family members offer immeasurable cost savings, and send a strong, positive message. In a climate where many benefits are being eliminated, this speaks volumes in terms of commitment from partner companies to their employees' professional development," said Pamela DellaPorta, Director of Corporate Partnerships at NECB. 

New England College of Business and Finance offers a range of online higher education degrees. Those interested in NECB's Associate of Science in Business Administration (ASBA) can choose program concentrations in Accounting, Banking, Finance, Management or Marketing. The ASBA is designed to help students smoothly transition to the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree (BSBA), which also has program concentrations in Accounting, Banking, Finance, Management or Marketing. For NECUS employees and family members who have already earned a Bachelor's degree, NECB also offers two graduate degrees: a Master of Science in Finance and a Master of Science in Business Ethics and Compliance. Students who apply for NECB's Master's Programs are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).

All NECB courses are offered exclusively online, with a vast student support system. Inquiries regarding scholarship and enrollment opportunities should be directed to Pamela.Dellaporta@necb.edu, or visit www.necb.edu/2010.
