Chipotle announces debt-free degrees for all employees
Chipotle Mexican Grill announced that it will provide the opportunity for all eligible employees, including crew members, to pursue a debt-free college degree through an expansion of the Chipotle Cultivate Education benefits program. "This enhancement continues our commitment to education, providing employees with over $20 million in tuition assistance over the past two years." Chipotle is covering 100% of tuition costs up front for 75 different types of business and technology degrees through their partnership with Guild Education, one of the leading education benefits companies in the country. Chipotle is adding this opportunity to obtain debt-free degrees to its education benefits program to give employees the chance to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the evolving 21st century job market. After 120 days of employment, employees are eligible to pursue degrees from leading nonprofit, accredited universities, including The University of Arizona, Bellevue University, Brandman University, Southern New Hampshire University, and Wilmington University.
