This first-of-its kind alliance offers Indian students an incredible opportunity to get a fully accredited US degree from the university
The University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, USA, and 91springboard, one of India’s pioneer co-working spaces, announced a strategic partnership to provide undergraduate and graduate courses to students and working professionals. This is an exemplary programme that is tailor-made for virtual learning at 91springboard office spaces across the country. Thus, enabling students access to a safe and healthy learning environment without compromising on quality education and, without leaving the country.
Students can choose from over 40 undergraduate (four year) and 20 graduate (two year) courses in engineering, computer technology, humanities, business management, applied sciences and many more subjects. With an exclusive, substantial scholarship in place that provisions for transfer to the main campus at reduced fee, this is one of the most flexible and affordable ways to get a fully accredited US degree from a high ranking US university, without travelling abroad.
Speaking about the collaboration, V Shantakumar, senior strategy advisor, 91springboard, said, “We are delighted to partner with University of Arizona for a one-of-a-kind partnership where coworking meets co-learning to enrich the lives of students and offer relief to concerned parents who wish the best for their children. What's interesting about this partnership is the width of courses available and its unique format. Unlike other online courses where the lectures are pre-recorded, these courses are extremely interactive. Students can talk to their professors and peers one-on-one and get counselling and guidance.”

At affordable fees, students can opt out of a range of courses without having to worry about other expenses like accommodation, food, travel, etc.”
