(CBS) — Papa John’s employees can now attend college free of charge through a new Purdue tuition benefit program.
Papa John’s and Purdue University Global have teamed up to offer an online degree program in which eligible employees can take online classes and receive a 100-percent reimbursement for their education.
The program was designed to give employees an opportunity to advance their careers through the company.
Purdue University Global Chancellor Betty Vandenbosch says both the business and the employees benefit from this program.
“Employers are finding it much more cost effective to train the people they know who already understand their companies, their company culture, its values and to help their very good employees move to the next level to build the skills that they need,” Vandenbosch said.
Employees can receive anywhere from an associates degree to a master’s degree. Majors include information technology, cybersecurity, accounting and finance.
