2U Announces First Online Undergrad Degree Offering

2U is partnering with the London School of Economics and Political Science to offer the company's first online undergraduate degree program.

Education technology provider 2U is getting into the online undergraduate degree space under a new partnership with the London School of Economics and Political Science. Both institutions are working together to develop a bachelor of science in data science and business analytics that can be earned fully online.

The curriculum for the degree will be developed by faculty from LSE's departments of statistics, mathematics, economics and management. Students will be able to complete the degree program within 36 months.

The program will be delivered through a combination of asynchronous and live classes using 2U's online platform.

"The BSc in data science and business analytics is highly relevant for today's employers across all sectors, who now require their staff to routinely deal with data and analysis. This degree program equips them to meet these demands and ensures they are work-ready," said Craig O'Callaghan, director of operations and deputy chief executive, University of London Worldwide.
