Indiana University, named a Top-25 provider of online higher education two years in a row by U.S. News and World Report, has partnered with Infosys, a leading global provider of information technology services with an expanding presence in Indiana, to offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs to Infosys employees.
The agreement will offer five IU undergraduate and 12 graduate degree programs in emerging and high-demand scientific, technological and business management fields to eligible Infosys employees throughout the United States.
"As one of the nation's leading research universities, IU is pleased to provide a diverse, rigorous and rewarding academic experience to students, as well as a critical tool to help our partners such as Infosys further develop their workforce," said Chris Foley, associate vice president for academic affairs and director of the IU Office of Online Education. "Corporate-university partnerships such as this have proven to drive economic growth both locally and globally by enabling individuals and entire organizations to respond to the rapidly changing needs of the marketplace."
All IU Online courses are developed and taught by on-campus faculty, and applicants must meet the same IU admissions requirements as traditional IU students.
Graduates of all IU Online programs receive an internationally recognized IU degree.
Available degree programs in the IU/Infosys partnership include informatics, business administration, cybersecurity, strategic management and marketing. Individual programs are targeted to each student's personal and professional goals in communication, critical thinking, research, data management and the humanities.
The Infosys partnership further reflects IU Online's growing capabilities to provide affordable, scalable distance-education options for both individual students and entire organizations.
