the Partnership means current and future leaders can earn accredited graduate and executive degrees from IU while gaining a deeper understanding of how exponential technologies are dramatically affecting businesses, communities, and countries. In addition to learning about the future through a river of content from Singularity, UI students will be part of an exclusive UI cohort within the Singularity community of more than 250,000 impact innovators. These innovators themselves contribute content and ideas from countries around the world on topics such as clean energy, longevity, mobility, smart cities and more.
“Several major trends are converging that make this partnership powerful. First, hundreds of millions of students around the world deserve access “at all times” to more affordable and relevant undergraduate and graduate programs. Second, exponential technologies continually make possible new solutions to serious problems facing humanity and the planet,” said Steve Leonard, CEO of Singularity Group. “Our partnership with IU combines the best of our respective abilities to benefit students around the world as they become leaders of companies, communities and countries.”
Sven Schütt, CEO of IU, said, “At IU, we are passionate about learner-centered education to unlock human potential and empower people to grow. Europe fastest growing university and largest state-approved educational institution Germany, we are a pioneer in harnessing technology and innovation.
