eCornell Partners with Canadian HR Press to Serve Canadian Market
ITHACA, NY — NOV 1, 2006 — eCornell has announced a multi-year partnership with the Canadian HR Press to provide Ivy League professional development and executive education to Canadian professionals.
This unique partnership addresses the growing need for online learning options for individual and corporate learners in Canada. eCornell's Ivy League content, focused in the areas of human resources, leadership and strategic management, financial management, management essentials, and hospitality management, was previously available only from eCornell's Ithaca, NY offices. eCornell's courses are authored by leading faculty from Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations, Johnson Graduate School of Management, and School of Hotel Administration.
"Canadian HR Press is extremely proud to bring eCornell to the Canadian market. Our research indicates that there is a strong desire for online learning to meet the professional development needs of Canadian organizations and individuals," says Bob Delaney, President of Canadian HR Press. "Additionally, there is a lack of high quality online professional development programs available in Canada. Our partnership with eCornell brings the highest quality, Ivy League online professional development programming available to the Canadian marketplace at a very affordable price. Increasingly our customers have told us that they require flexibility in their training and development as the time away from work and family is costly and stressful — eCornell meets the needs of our customers!"
eCornell's interactive, rigorous, and relevant courses have been used by more than 14,500 professionals in 161 countries to develop management, leadership, and functional skills. Its proprietary delivery methodology of Structured Flexiblity™ provides the optimal combination of the structure of a well defined course schedule and clearly communicated milestones with the flexibility of online learning which allows you to choose when and where to learn.
"Canadian HR Press is the ideal partner for eCornell in Canada," says eCornell's President Chris Proulx. "Their knowledge of the working professional's training and development needs is excellent and they are in a unique position to introduce the Canadian marketplace to the online professional development and executive education programs of Cornell University."
