Global Academy (Online) is among the first
institutional specialists and startup experts in developing entirely new colleges and universities from the ground up. Beginning
in 2002, the Academy's specialists targeted organizations desiring to create stand-alone schools as new operating divisions
of traditional nonprofit schools seeking to break into the development of their own online programs. Prior to Global Academy,
many attempted, few succeeded due to the resistance of existing faculty. MIT, Columbia, the University of Illinois and the
University of Maryland were all early pioneers. However only the University of Maryland persisted and survived the early experiments
in the 90's.
Partnering with a century and a half year
old University and its newly formed Business
School Entrepreneur Studies Division, Global Academy (Online) developed its first private-label degree
and training programs that made their collective debuts as a 36 hour MBA/Leadership program and 10 day leadership training
certificate programs. Today, the MBA is the Global Academy (Online) anchor program and the first of over 40 other degree and
certificate/diploma programs that followed. Each individually and collectively can be offered enabling the professional formation
and initiation of an entire online university for organizations worldwide in as little as six months in certain domestic and
international jurisdictions and up to five years in others.
Global Academy (Online) recruits international faculty that are both ground-based classroom and online experienced to delivery college courses at all levels as well as specialized
in-depth training within critical public sectors. No other online institution-to-institution provider compares.
Curriculum and program availability ranges from certificate training to custom designed
degree paths. Doctoral and Masters certified and qualified faculty are recruited and placed by Global Academy (Online) to deliver its licensed programs to institutions using specially designed private-label Course
Management Learning Systems. The systems support and enhance the technology level of new online and blended schools developing
new online undergraduate, graduate and stand alone divisions.
