Geneva College and the City of Pittsburgh have recently partnered to help adults continue their college educations. The partnership allows Pittsburgh employees and their immediate family members to receive a 15% tuition discount upon enrolling in Geneva’s Adult Degree Programs and select Graduate Programs.
Linda Roundtree, Recruitment Manager for the Master of Science in Organizational Leadership program, worked with Katy Rittle, Manager of Training and Development for the City of Pittsburgh. “The City of Pittsburgh contacted me to see if Geneva College would be interested in the partnership,” said Roundtree. “It's not very often that an organization initiates the partnership.”
With over 3,400 employees, city leaders felt that this partnership could mutually benefit both organizations. “They especially liked that Geneva offered business-related programs designed for adult students, with a Downtown Pittsburgh location,” said Roundtree. City representatives also believe that classes provided at an affordable rate, geared towards adults and at a convenient location, will encourage employees to continue their educations.
“We were very excited to have the opportunity to partner with the City of Pittsburgh,” said Roundtree. “This partnership strengthens the presence of Geneva College graduate and adult degree programs within the City of Pittsburgh and provides the opportunity for more adult students to benefit from a Geneva College education.”
The Adult Degree Programs offers fully online bachelor's degree programs in organizational leadership, human resources and Christian ministry leadership. Classroom programs are also available, with majors in organizational development, human resources, human services and Christian ministry leadership.
Six of Geneva’s seven master’s degree programs are available at the discounted tuition: MBA, Counseling, Higher Education, Organizational Leadership, Reading and Special Education. The only program exempt from the discount is Cardiovascular Science, which includes training at the INOVA Heart and Vascular Institute in VA.
Geneva College invites students to accept the challenge of an academically excellent, Christ-centered and affordable education. Offering nearly 40 undergraduate majors, Adult Degree Programs with fully online and campus-based options, and seven graduate degrees, Geneva’s programs are recognized for their high quality. U.S. News & World Report ranks Geneva as a Top 10 Best Value in the North Region with one of the Top 100 engineering programs in the nation. Adhering to the inerrancy of Scripture, a Geneva education is grounded in God’s word as well as in a core curriculum designed to prepare students vocationally to think, write and communicate well in today’s world.
Geneva graduates have an 80% acceptance rate when applying for entrance to medical school–well above the national average.
