Education without limits.

Alverno Accelerate meets you where you are in life with an affordable, flexible online path to a bachelor’s degree in leadership, which can be earned in three years or less. It’s your time and your opportunity to take that next step and advance toward a career that aligns with who you are.

Accelerate is unlike traditional online programs — it is a “learn by doing” program that will push you to learn within the context of your life, allowing you to apply what you learn to experiences in your community and your work.

About the Program

Instead of a traditional four-year college experience, Accelerate has three distinct levels based on your number of credits.
Each level helps you grow your skill set as you learn to adapt to the world around you.

Level One: Learner

Explore the possibilities of Accelerate and shape your plan. Every ELM in this level gets you started on the best path for you.

Level Two: Professional

Develop your skills, expand your knowledge and broaden your perspective. Grow into an empathetic leader, ready to change the world.

Level Three: Leader

Create and lead your capstone project and build your final portfolio as you prepare for success after graduation.

Alverno Accelerate is for students who want or need something different. We meet students where they are, honor what they have done, and work with them to set and meet their goals.

Innovative and Interactive

Learners engage with their personal and professional communities through the innovative online Experiential Learning Modules (ELMs). ELMs are a series of rich, interactive, outcomes-based activities that allow learners to move forward with increasing depth through practice, repetition and demonstration of durable skills needed for the 21st century.
