George Mason University Develops Cloud Computing Bachelor’s with Amazon

George Mason University has developed a cloud computing bachelor’s degree in partnership with Amazon Web Services.

Reported by Education Dive, along with Northern Virginia Community College, George Mason has created a seamless path to a four-year bachelor’s degree preparing students for their cloud computing career. This program includes curriculum that prepares students to earn additional credentials from Amazon directly, such as the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner credential.

The takeaway? George Mason’s proximity to Amazon’s new headquarters in Northern Virginia makes this partnership ideal. But how else can we work with partners like these to give our students employer-centric credentials while they earn their degree?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
