Trident’s learning approach helps you prepare to take your education further than you thought possible.

A member of an accredited University System, Trident is made up of three key differentiators, that create a dynamic learning approach. EdActive™ Learning is unique because the learning outcomes help our students prepare for the workplace by enhancing their ability to think, to learn, and to solve problems. 100% accessible online, combined with no daily micromanagement promotes a flexible learning environment designed to enable adult learners to excel at a manageable pace. Affordability is key to our overall success for our students. We keep our tuition costs as low as possible, so students receive a quality education at an affordable cost.

We brought our vision to life for the adult student like you.

The idea for a 100% online university was conceived several years prior to its formal organization in 1998 by Drs. Yoram and Edith Neumann. A precursor to Trident’s EdActive™ Learning Approach, Yoram developed the Robust Learning Model (RLM) with several contributions from Edith. The model was presented for the first time at the professional conference of the Academy of Business Administration in 1996 in Athens, Greece, where it was received with a standing ovation. The RLM was developed by the Neumanns for distance and online learning and is recognized as a best practice for online education worldwide.
