WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI ) — Papa John's and Purdue University Global have teamed up to offer an online degree program for employees.

Eligible employees can take online classes and receive a 100% 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 said university-business partnerships have seen success.

“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 they need,” said Vandenbosch.

Vandenbosch said both the business and the employees benefit from this tuition program.

“Employee development, employee promotion, employee retention those are fundamental to the success of any corporation,” said Vandenbosch.

Employees can receive anywhere from an associate degree to a master's degree. Majors include Information Technology, Cybersecurity, Accounting, and Finance.
