CSU/Amazon Partnership Hits Ground Running

Cleveland State University is partnering with Amazon to further expand career advancement opportunities the company offers its 750,000 hourly employees across the country. The announcement for this partnership came in March 2022. CSU is the only four-year degree partner in Greater Cleveland and provides eligible Amazon employees with a fully funded education through the company’s Career Choice program.

Career Choice is Amazon’s upskilling program, designed to help its frontline employees grow their skills for career success at Amazon or elsewhere. Through Career Choice at CSU, Amazon employees can pursue a bachelor’s degree, earn industry certifications leading to in-demand jobs and build skills through English language proficiency.
