Contest to Win 'Free Degree' at New England College of Business and Finance Hosted on Facebook

Initiative One of Several to Address College Affordability Challenges

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2011) - As part of its "I'm All Business" Campaign, for the second year in a row New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) is offering those who wish to pursue a college degree a shot at receiving the tuition entirely for free -- a value of up to $44,000.

Open for submissions on NECB's Facebook page now through August 12, 2011, the contest challenges anyone looking to attend college to answer the question, "Why am I all business?" Submissions will be posted online and voted on by the public. A panel of NECB faculty members will select the winner from the five entries with the most votes this September.

NECB is committed to helping adults of all ages continue their education by providing high quality, affordable degree programs and by creating opportunities like the "I'm All Business" contest, and special discounting programs for military spouses and corporate partners' employees.

Howard E. Horton, Esq., president of NECB commented, "We know what students are facing today given the current economic climate, ongoing employment challenges and deepening concerns about how to pay or continue to pay for college, which is why we are employing a variety of initiatives to help. We hope to make a difference in our students' lives."

Founded in 1909 as an educator for financial institutions, NECB is a fully accredited Boston institution offering undergraduate and graduate degrees through online programs that are flexible and affordable. Distinctively, the College's curriculum focuses on real-world finance and business material, offering programs to address the ever-changing landscape such as the first-ever Master of Science in Business Ethics and Compliance (MBE) degree.

The winner of the contest will receive a scholarship that covers full tuition and application fees for an entire degree program from NECB. More information about the contest, including official rules, can found on the NECB Facebook page. For more information about NECB, please visit
