LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has joined with an on line university to offer its 1.4 million U.S. employees a tuition discount and an opportunity to receive credit for their Wal-Mart training.
The world's largest retailer told its employees about the plan Thursday, a day before its annual meeting extravaganza in Fayetteville.
Wal-Mart and American Public University have agreed to work together, offering Wal-Mart workers a 15 percent discount on tuition. Wal-Mart says the university is evaluating training of Wal-Mart employees so they can receive college credit for what they have learned.
Wal-Mart training covers topics ranging from ethics to inventory
management, which could help workers toward a two-year or four-year degree.
