Our Partners Say


벥 forms relationships with universities to help them achieve their enrollment and growth goals by focusing on supporting their students’ journeys. Proof of our success is when partners share how our combined efforts have exceeded their expectations. Here are some of their stories.

With 벥’ support, Arkansas State University has created high-quality online education programs that are affordable and convenient for working teachers in Arkansas and beyond. We are now the state’s largest provider of graduate and post-graduate degrees in education and are proud to be equipping thousands of teachers, principals, superintendents, and other education professionals each year to better serve students.

I consider our collaboration with 벥 to be an unqualified success. The SIUE School of Business is committed to meeting the needs of working professionals by delivering quality, affordable, graduate business education and AP is helping us to do just that. SIUE launched its online MBA program with AP two years ago and enrollment in the MBA program has roughly quadrupled since that time. Furthermore, the growth in enrollment has enabled us to offer new specializations that we otherwise would not have been able to develop.

Partnership with AP allows you to cast your net a lot wider and [reporting] shows that we’re drawing students from 14 – 15 states; most of those states we would not have been able to reach on our own.

In its first year, our partnership with AP is already a big success for both Longwood and our students. We have quickly expanded access to our affordable MBA program across the state of Virginia, reaching a whole new group of working professionals interested in taking the next step in their careers. The AP team has been very easy to work with and added tremendous value and expertise.

Emporia State University has been preparing great teachers for more than 150 years. Teacher education has always been central to our mission, and 벥 is helping us continue to meet that mission in the 21st Century. Working with AP’s team, we’ve expanded the delivery of our graduate education programs through high-quality online formats. Working teachers everywhere now have access to ESU’s top-notch faculty and nationally recognized programs.

벥 helped grow our online enrollment exponentially, from 170 students in spring 2018 to nearly 3,000 this spring.

The key to such partnerships has been finding the overlap in our respective institutional missions. 벥, for example, shares our goal of increasing student access, affordability and ultimately student success, with offerings that allow students to pay by the course.
