In addition to serving students in its degree and certificate programs, Berkeley College has a Corporate Learning Partnership (CLP) program which offers significant benefits to employees and families of member organizations. This innovative platform creates an alliance between Berkeley and these organizations, which include corporations, nonprofits, and even towns and municipalities. One of the many benefits of this partnership is a 30% tuition reduction for those who pursue their degree on-site and online.*

As the fourteenth of sixteen children in his family, college wasn’t immediately in the plans for Adam Karriem. In fact, he was 32 before he even began and eventually became the first of his siblings to earn a degree. “I was skeptical about returning to school after being out for so long, he remembered. “But I was always good with computers and looked into Berkeley while I was exploring colleges. I visited the New York City campus and immediately felt very comfortable. Everyone was down-to-earth—very friendly and welcoming. They answered all my questions and I loved the fact that the classes were small.”

When Demetria Foster was a young girl, she would invite her friends in the neighborhood over to play school. They would gather chairs from the all over the house and line them up in neat rows in the front yard. Of course, she would start by taking attendance and handing out little schoolbooks that she made herself. The class would then work from the books on whatever assignment she had decided on for that day. Demetria was four when she started “teaching.” Now, she is living her childhood dream by teaching business courses at Berkeley College.
