A private university in Chicago is using Groupon to appeal to a different kind of audience.
Starting today, National Louis University will offer future teachers a Groupon for nearly 60% off tuition of an entry-level graduate teaching course. It will discount the cost for the three-credit introductory course from $2,232 to $950.
National Louis University is opening the offer up to as many as 25 buyers, who have to have an undergraduate degree to participate in the deal. Students will need to complete another 33 credits at full price to earn a graduate degree.
The university hopes that offering this deal will help prospective teachers “understand what the realities are, whether you are committed to this profession … and see if you have what it takes.”
Groupon is pretty excited about opening up to a new market. They see it as an “opportunity for our subscribers to take the first step toward what could be a new career…National Louis joins an innovative list of merchants who were the first in their industry to experiment with collective buying power, and do it on Groupon.”
What do you think? Is an education something you should buy on a social buying site?
