The leadership of the university in experiential learning and the integration of classroom study along with professional experience provides a foundation for the expansion of the university to new regions, including Vancouver. The university has made the classroom connected and real by integrating the workplace into the online and hybrid degree programs.
- The University has a study abroad program that spans more than 170 universities. The university features a cooperative education program which is known as "co-op," and integrates classroom study with professional experience including over 3,100 partners across all seven continents.
- The online courses of the university are not simply classroom-based courses that are pasted into the online environment. Working with industry partners, the university is the first to create an online education model which is driven by cognitive science and powered by experiential learning.
