SNHU, My Alma Mater Considered One of the 50 Most Innovative Companies

Who would have thought that Southern New Hampshire University is considered the forerunner in innovating Higher Education.

Snuggled in between highlights of such companies as HBO and my new favorite auto, Tesla, SNHU is changing online education not only in New England, but across the US too.

A small school with intelligent educators in a small town with not much going on. I am not complaining about my education. However, I am wary of a school more concerned with putting money into lawn sculptures rather than money where its needed most: the classroom. 

In an effort to look at this article with perhaps less disdained eyes, I come to the notion that yes, SNHU is undertaking what will be a lucrative outcome. If with the right believers and advisors of a MOOC (massive open online course) instruction model, then this not-for-profit institution will surely rise to be the leader in New England at least, if not the country like President LeBlanc hopes.
