BOSTON, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of California, Berkeley recently honored EMERITUS with the first Lifelong Learning Laureate Award for "helping to increase the impact on business and society and extending the important work of faculty beyond the traditional bounds of the University." Specifically, the honor was a result of EMERITUS' impact on education.

"It is a testament to the work we are doing, the impact we're having on a global scale and what we aspire to do going forward."

EMERITUS partners with top institutions of higher learning to provide online programs for working professionals. Its programs cover a range of topics, including general management, digital transformation and cybersecurity. EMERITUS teamed up with University of California Berkeley Executive Education to offer Artificial Intelligence: Business Strategies and Applications. In addition, EMERITUS provided Berkeley with a platform to offer a first-of-its-kind, three-day course on leadership featuring its star faculty in both Singapore and Dubai.

In collaboration with their institutional partners, EMERITUS courses are taught by renowned faculty and the programs are an opportunity for educators to share their research and expertise without the limits of geography. Growing rapidly, EMERITUS is educating participants from all around the world and in a variety of languages, so that their students will be better prepared for the future of work. EMERITUS expects to offer 110 programs, up from the current 65, by June 2020. Their goal is to extend the reach of top tier education, to help global students to have access to world class faculty, and to make it affordable and narrow the skills gap to ensure the professional success of their participants.
