Global Academy is among the first institutional
specialists and startup experts in developing entirely new colleges and universities from the ground up. Beginning in 2012,
the Academy's specialists re-targeted the education development programs from strictly curriculum development to schools
desiring to create stand-alone online operating divisions of traditional nonprofit schools seeking to break into the development
of their own online degree 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. Since they have all come around to various
applications of their own.
Global Academy partnered
with 150 year old University and its newly formed Business School's Entrepreneur Studies Division to develop 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.
Academy 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.
