LENEXA, Kan., July 2, 2018­ — Grantham University, a leading online education provider, is proud to announce a partnership with the Kansas City area United Parcel Service (UPS) hubs, in Kansas City, Mo., Lenexa and Edgerton, Kan.

As part of the partnership, UPS employees can earn a Grantham University undergraduate or graduate degree at a reduced tuition rate and enjoy a 90-day tuition deferral when using their corporate tuition reimbursement program. Employees can choose from Grantham’s 50+ online programs that map to careers in business, technology, criminal justice, health care and more.

“We are proud to partner with an organization of UPS’s caliber and reputation that shares our commitment to helping employees advance their lives personally and professionally,” said Scott Andrews, president and CEO of Grantham University. “Our programs are perfect for employees interested in upward mobility or exploring corporate opportunities currently outside their realm of expertise, like HR, marketing, IT or finance.”

According to Andrews, another prime benefit for corporate employees is Grantham’s online convenience and flexible schedules. “We make it possible to achieve a degree without interrupting a student’s work schedule. Classes start each month and students can access coursework at the time and place that works best in their day.”

The agreement with UPS is one of Grantham’s more than 20 corporate, association and education partners. With one of the lowest tuition rates nationwide1 and recently ranked as the #1 most diverse college in Kansas, Grantham engages with the community through education fairs, event sponsorships, lunch-and-learns and community grant programs.
