At Cengage Learning and ed2go, we believe education is the key to providing people with a path to a better future. That is why we are committed to partnering with organizations that share our passion for making education more accessible.

As a part of these efforts, we are proud to announce that Cengage Learning and ed2go are partnering with McDonald’s in its “Archways to Opportunity” campaign, a groundbreaking new employee education program promoting workforce education to support business and ensure employee success and advancement. Through this new initiative, McDonald’s will be providing eligible employees with an opportunity to receive their high school diploma and career certificate through Career Online High School, offered through Cengage Learning’s ed2go.

Cengage Learning believes that education can empower people to maximize their full potential and seize opportunities for a brighter future. In addition to our workforce development efforts with McDonald’s, we also recently announced Taco Bell’s first Career Online High School graduate, through our partnership to make education more accessible to its team members. We look to these companies as innovative leaders in providing educational opportunities and applaud their passion for supporting their employees with unique benefits for training leading to a better future.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with McDonald’s on its effort to broaden access to education and increase workforce development opportunities for its employees. Education is a true game changer and at Cengage Learning we are proud to join organizations in their efforts to help employees realize their education goals.
