All of the collegiate offerings are recommended for credit by the American Council on Education. Each of these courses is focused around an area of expertise within The Walt Disney Company and contains levels of academic rigor not uncommon to the classes you take at your own college or university. Participants will have required textbooks to read, papers to write and special projects to complete. The difference is that participants will be able to apply this knowledge immediately at their work location.
