We don’t mean to brag, but have you heard the good news? If you work for a certified Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) US dealership, you can attend Strayer University for free.
Yes, we did say free. We also had to re-read the press release when we first saw it.
The announcement was made after Chrysler entered a partnership with Strayer University through a program called Degrees@Work. Right now, only employees in the Southeast region are eligible, but Tennessee is well within the region.
We at Cumberland Chrysler Center appreciate that the automaker values its employees and sees the benefit of this program and partnership. If FCA US cares for its employees that much, how much more do you think the automaker takes care of its customers in providing quality vehicles?
“FCA US is a true innovator for taking concrete steps towards reimagining the way education and business work together,” said Karl McDonnell, CEO of Strayer Education, the organization that owns Strayer University. “We are proud to partner with an organization that is tackling national issues of college affordability and the skills gap head-on. FCA US is creating new ways of learning that work for both the employer and the employee – skills are developed that immediately drive measurable results and employees are given a pathway to a college degree without debt.”
Don’t be surprised if you stop by the dealership and see our noses buried in a textbook or two.
