Director of Partnerships

Upright Education, a leading provider of tech skilling programs, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Northeastern State University (NSU) to address the growing demand for tech talent in Oklahoma. The collaboration marks a significant milestone in enhancing workforce development initiatives in the state, particularly to meet the tech labor growth in cities like Tulsa and Oklahoma City, where the tech industry is experiencing robust growth.

Through this partnership, Upright Education and NSU are committed to equipping adults with the essential skills needed to transition into high-demand roles within software engineering, data analytics, digital marketing, and UX/UI design. Programs are 100%online, but include several weekly live instruction times to ensure that learners are able to comprehend, retain, and apply new skills. Upright also provides unlimited access to career services to support job placement - including job search best practices and 1:1career coaching sessions. This comprehensive wraparound model is designed to support strong completion and placement outcomes.

"We are excited to launch our first partnership in Oklahoma, a region with a growing and evolving tech landscape. By joining forces with NSU, an institution dedicated to workforce development, we aim to empower adult learners to thrive in lucrative new careers and drive sustained growth for the economy.” said Benny Boas, CEO and Founder at Upright Education.
