MINNEAPOLIS -- January 24, 2013

Capella University, an accredited online university* that has built its
reputation by providing high-quality online degree programs for working
adults, has announced a new Management Consulting certificate  developed in
partnership with the Chartered Institute of Management Consultants® (CIMC), as
well as the redesign of seven Master of Science in Psychology specializations
to help students achieve their educational goals in less time and at lower
cost. The learning and career outcomes of Capella’s students and alumni can be

Management Consulting certificate delivers academic content for ChMC

Capella University’s new Management Consulting certificate is the only
CIMC-endorsed program that provides the academic background for Chartered
Management Consultant^® (ChMC) certification. CIMC is an internationally
recognized professional association that developed and oversees ChMC
certification as a global management credential.

“We wanted to offer our members an all-inclusive program that would deliver
the academic background required for ChMC certification,” said Linda Bird,
administrator of CIMC. “We selected Capella as our partner because we wanted
an accredited institution with an excellent academic reputation, expertise in
online, post-graduate education, and strong business management programs that
reflect the current business climate.”

Streamlined MS in Psychology curriculum delivers learning outcomes with
greater efficiency and affordability

The curriculum for many of Capella’s MS in Psychology specializations has been
streamlined to maximize efficiency while delivering the same learning
outcomes. The MS specializations include General Psychology; Educational
Psychology; Child and Adolescent Development; Evaluation, Research, and
Measurement; Leadership Coaching Psychology; Industrial/Organizational
Psychology; and Sport Psychology. Students who complete their entire program
save up to $6,450 and nine months time compared to the previous Capella
curriculum for these specializations and up to $7,000 over the cost of
comparable online programs.

“This redesign demonstrates our ongoing commitment to helping students earn a
degree in the most affordable way possible, without sacrificing the academic
quality for which Capella has become known,” said Scott Kinney, president of
Capella University. “We surveyed current and prospective students, and got a
clear message that while affordability is important, academic quality is
paramount. Our goal is also to improve our students’ chances of earning their
MS in Psychology by making it possible for them to achieve the same learning
outcomes in less time.”
