Nexford University Partners With Eduvanz

Nexford University Partners With Eduvanz To Bring The Most Affordable American MBAs And BBAs To India

Nexford University, a Washington D.C. based, tech-enabled online university, announces a partnership with an India-based educational loan firm, Eduvanz, to bring affordable business education to Indian consumers. The partnership will make educational loans more affordable and flexible for business students. The firm will finance the University's MBA & BBA programmes for up to 36 months at zero interest rates. Learners can finish the programme as rapidly as they wish but repay over a much longer period. Also could complete the programme in just 12 months and pay it back in over 24 months.

Research shows that over 50 per cent of Indian students will not have skills for 21st-century jobs by 2030 and 93 per cent of the Indian workforce is part of the unorganized sector - lacking skills required by employers. So the programmes are designed to deliver the skills that employers are actively looking for. India is a fast-growing economy requiring business skills for the country to fulfil its huge potential. Acquiring these skills, whilst managing the global challenge of student debt, is the challenge this partnership is attempting to solve.

From inception, the university’s vision was of a world moving towards a virtual talent grid. As internet connectivity increases worldwide, the only barrier to accessing economic opportunity should be skilled. The right skills should provide access to this talent grid. In 2020, they grew by 300 per cent, with learners enrolling from over 65 countries. They have also partnered with Microsoft, LinkedIn Learning, and IBM to provide access to tools and courses to enrich the learning experience. Their curriculum is specifically designed to match employers’ needs with its graduates’ skills – leveraging machine learning and Artificial Intelligence to create a data and skills-driven curriculum.
