“It’s about partnering with the right institutions,” said Grantham Vice President for University Partnerships, Dr. Marilyn Bartels. “We are confident we have a really good match and look forward to a long relationship with Allied American University.”
“This partnership provides a pathway for our students to continue their education by attaining a graduate degree,” adds AAU Provost, Dr. Bonny Nickle. “AAU believes that cooperative programs and partnerships with other institutions are highly beneficial to our students, and articulation with Grantham speaks volumes about the credibility and integrity of our academic degree programs.”
