AU, McDonalds strike partnership to allow crew to earn credits

Athabasca University and McDonald’s Canada have announced a new partnership that will offer restaurant employees the opportunity to work towards a university degree while on the job. Employees who complete McDonald’s Management Development program courses will be eligible for credit toward AU’s Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Human Resources and Labour Relations, and Bachelor of General Studies programs. “It’s exciting to work with a partner like McDonald’s Canada, which has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to professional development,” said AU Provost and Vice-President Academic Dr Matthew Prineas. “Together, we can help learners achieve their education goals and, in turn, become better leaders and difference-makers.” AU Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
