Cambridge College Acquires New England College of Business and Finance
Cambridge College, a NEC member, plans to merge with the New England College of Business and Finance (NECB), a fully online institution.
Discussions of a possible merger began in January when NECB reached out to Cambridge College. Students enrolled at NECB are employees of 300 corporate partners, making affordable online learning a priority for the institution. The merger, expected to be finalized in March, would offer 27 new online degrees and certificate programs for students. Both colleges are committed to providing accessible schooling for adult learners.
Deborah Jackson, President of Cambridge College, expressed her excitement about the merger. “NECB’s combination of affordability, innovation, and business integration are the very attributes we value at Cambridge College for our student community of working adults.”
The Council congratulates Cambridge College and NECB on this new partnership and for working to make education more accessible for full time employees. Read more in the Boston Business Journal.
