School Profiles: Kaplan University

Kaplan University offers an online digital marketing degree. Kaplan stands apart from the others to populate this page in that it primarily distributes its degrees to students who get credits online. Known for their study aids for tests like the LSAT and the MCAT, Kaplan University proper is in Davenport, Iowa, where the campus has been (albeit under a couple of different name) since 1937. 9 other, smaller campuses are operated by the University complex across Iowa, Nebraska, and Maryland. The school offers online MBA programs in Accounting, Management Studies, and Finance, along with courses in a wide variety of subjects.

The school is actually owned by a corporation that invests in institutes of higher learning, Kaplan Higher Learning Corp; that company is owned by Kaplan, Inc., which in turn is owned by the Washington Post. The Higher Learning group includes other local universities in the Midwest.

This represents a dynamic new direction for the school; though a variety of BBA degrees are available, the school has not offered a marketing degree until now.

The Kaplan program is widely used across the country to fill extra credits and inch more quickly toward degrees. The digital degree requires a measure of commitment, however, as the requirements are fairly school-specific.
