SU, JPMorgan Chase collaborate on new, free certificate program for veterans
Today, JPMorgan Chase and Co. announced a new Technology Education Certificate program for veterans, furthering the collaboration between JPMC and Syracuse University. The program will draw on SU and JPMorgan’s very successful Global Enterprise Technology (GET) program and the many successful SU initiatives that support veterans, including those in the Whitman School of Management, L.C. Smith College of Engineering & Computer Science (LCS) and University College.
The Technology Education Certificate will be a free, non-credit certificate program delivered via distance education and focused on preparing post 9/11 veterans for employment in global technology and service companies, including JPMorgan Chase.
The program is expected to include several paths for veterans, including those toward degree programs at SU’s School of Information Studies (iSchool), Whitman School and LCS, and will enhance the University’s national reputation for supporting veterans, and further the extension of JPMorgan Chase partnership.
This initiative has been announced by JPMorgan Chase as part of a larger announcement detailing their support of veterans. The full JPMorgan Chase announcement can be viewed at http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110215006155/en/JPMorgan-Chase-Announces-Programs-Military-Veterans.
