Tailored Partnership Models
We individualize partnership agreements with our universities based on one of our two models.
Revenue Share: 68% of partners
This model is a fit for partners that need complete support expanding their online programs. We customize these agreements at both the institution and program levels.
Fee-For-Service: 32% of partners
This model fits partners who don’t need the full suite of offerings. We unbundle our services to help universities reach targeted goals (e.g., market research, instructional design).
We’re proud of our partners’ affordability and caliber. Their programs tend to cost less than those by other schools without sacrificing quality.

What our partners say
“Given what the industry is like now, some of us might ask, ‘Would we even be here if we hadn’t partnered with Wiley?’ If we hadn’t, we’d be smaller. We wouldn’t have the leverage to get out in front of things. And we might be on the same chopping block as a lot of smaller schools that couldn’t make the tough decisions to invest in new ways of delivering education.”
– Eric LaMott, COO and Provost, Concordia University, St. Paul
What our learners say
“My academic advisor is the reason I have continued [in my program]. He was the key at the beginning, and then everything else fell into place. I feel like he ‘has my back.’ I appreciate his attention and promptness very much.”
