HERNDON, Va. -- November 19, 2012

The Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University and Udemy, a leading
online education marketplace, announce today a strategic partnership to offer
online leadership development solutions available through a Massive Open
Online Course (MOOC) provider.

The Jack Welch Management Institute applies the celebrated management
practices of Fortune magazine’s “Manager of the Century,” Jack Welch and
combines real-world instruction with immediate, on-the-job applicability. The
Institute currently offers Executive MBA and Executive Certificate programs
that fit the needs of new and experienced managers alike.

Through extensive work with over 150 corporations, the Jack Welch Management
Institute and Strayer University have identified an unmet business need for
high-quality, practical management training. Corporations are increasingly
looking for shorter-form courses that provide specific, applicable and timely
education to a large pool of employees as an effective way of further
educating their teams. Together, the Jack Welch Management Institute and Udemy
are committed to solving this business need by providing world-class
leadership training courses on a large scale to individuals and mid- and
large-size companies worldwide.

“We are always looking for innovative ways to bring technology enhancements to
our offerings and our clients have told us that too many management training
and development programs don’t deliver on their promise because the content is
too rigid and theoretical,” said Dean Sippel, General Manager of the Jack
Welch Management Institute. “The courses that we will provide, offer ultimate
flexibility, a personalized learning experience, and winning skills that can
be used on the job, right away.”

The courses will be customized based on user preference, either instructor-led
or self-paced, but both will remain true to the on-demand model, providing
working professionals the much needed flexibility to achieve the certification
whenever and wherever convenient. Courses, which will be provided at a cost,
will include leadership, people management, strategy, operational excellence
and others.

“The Jack Welch Management Institute is one of the most respected
adult-focused educators in the United States, and we are proud to be their
partner,” said Dennis Yang, president and chief operating officer, Udemy. “We
both believe that the cross collaboration between education and technology is
the key to personal growth and the future of learning.”
