OVERVIEW

Richard wanted a genuine, globally recognized degree for better career prospects. But with his full-time job and other personal commitments, he found it difficult, rather impossible, to pursue a full-time traditional higher education. So he began his search for the right online online university to obtain a university degree. He came up with the following three key questions in this regard.

PROCESS

Richard´s three questions were:

(i) How quickly could he get his degree?
(ii) Was it inexpensive and affordable?
(iii) Was the educational institution accredited and the education it provided of high quality?

He started research and short listed some of the best online universities based on his three requirements.
SUCCESS

Richard decided to enroll in RISE University´s program. To his delight and satisfaction, he successfully completed his University degree within a year, in spite of his other full-time projects and personal commitments that took up a chunk of his time.
