Practicality, Quality, and Convenience: The Formula for Successful Career Based Education

Since Peirce opened its doors 150 years ago, our purpose has been to arm adults with the knowledge, degrees, and credentials to start a new career or advance their current careers. With this purpose in mind, we’ve continuously innovated to bring students the skills needed to thrive in a quickly changing workforce by implementing practicality, quality, and convenience into everything we do.

Practicality has always been a part of the Peirce model. By effectively combining theory with real world scenarios faced by companies in the students’ fields of study, we’ve created a hands on approach that gives students the insight and confidence they need to hit the ground running as they start their new careers.

Peirce prides itself in the quality of our programs. From our rigorous selection of instructors who bring real-world experience to the classroom to the many accreditations and approvals our degree programs have earned, we invest heavily to ensure our students get the most appropriate education to help them advance their goals.

As busy working adult students, convenience has always been a key benefit of attending Peirce. For example, we began piloting online courses in 1999 and more recently been featured on U.S. News and World Report’s list of the best online bachelor’s degree programs for three years in a row. In addition to online courses, our day and evening classes, along with the rollout of our intra course flexible delivery model means adult students are able to customize their education in the manner most convenient for their busy lives.

As we celebrate the past 150 years and look forward to the next 150 years, this practicality, quality, and convenience will continue to be core pillars of our focus.
