Springfield, IL, May 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Today, onlineUSdegrees launched "Let's Fix Illinois" to restore prosperity by exporting Illinois higher education. “The United states is the academic envy of the world,” according to Bjarne Jensen, Founder and President of onlineUSdegrees. “Our 10-Year Jobs Plan will leverage that academic envy by globally marketing the 68 Illinois schools which have online programs. We will add 2.1 million online students over 10-years, creating 392,000 new jobs in Illinois. The increases in GDP and tax revenues will restore financial stability to the state. The unique aspect of our Jobs Plan is it can be accomplished outside of the political process.”
A new opportunity: Campus enrollment by international students, all of them from wealthy foreign families, recently plateaued indicating an end to international campus enrollment growth. However, a much bigger enrollment opportunity is the one billion middle class foreigners who cannot afford to come here. Online is their only US academic option. The international online opportunity is one thousand times greater than additional classroom enrollment.
The Problem: International on-line enrollment is stymied by the way internet searches generate search results. Because commission-seeking college brokers pay for preferential placement, information about online programs offered by reputable colleges and universities is nearly impossible to find. Prospective students and the families that support them need to be guided through a process that is too difficult for them to navigate on their own.
onlineUSdegrees Solution: Personal counseling via on-location enrollment seminars is the key to connect prospective foreign students with Illinois online degree programs. By helping prospective students navigate a process that is very difficult to accomplish without us, we will resolve the Illinois financial crisis. Our pilot enrollment seminars will be in China. When we have fine-tuned our seminars and enrollment assistance protocol, we will expand all over China and replicate the process to the rest of the emerging world.
OnlineUSdegrees is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation. Their goal is to add jobs and revenues to Illinois, the means to restore fiscally sound government that promotes growth and financial expansion.
