Reduced Tuition Rate Available for Subscribers of Compliance Week

New England College of Business and Finance Offers Unique Ethics and Compliance Online Masters Degree Program at Special Rate for Subscribers

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) - A new online degree at Boston-based New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) focuses on the same kinds of issues that are critical to readers of Compliance Week, a print magazine and electronic newsletter on corporate governance, risk and compliance. The College is offering a special 20 percent reduction in the tuition rate of Compliance Week subscribers who are interested in pursuing the College's new online Master of Science in Business Ethics and Compliance (MBE), or any of NECB's high-quality, business-focused online associate's, bachelor's, or master's degree programs. 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. 

"The reduced 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 online degree programs, especially in the first ever online master's degree program that concentrates on ethics and compliance," she said. 

Social responsibility is examined closely in NECB's online Master of Science in Business Ethics and Compliance degree (MBE). The first-of-its-kind in the nation online 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 online MBE or the College's Master of Science in Finance (MSF) online degree program are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). 

All of NECB's online degree programs have been accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), the country's oldest regional accreditation body. Courses 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. Online master's degree programs offered at NECB can be completed in 15 months. 

To take advantage of the 20 percent reduced tuition benefit, Compliance Week subscribers 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.
