This partnership will allow Traffic.com employees and their immediate families the opportunity to complete an online degree or certificate program through Drexel and receive special tuition rates. Employees can choose from a range of bachelor’s, master’s, and certificate programs that Drexel offers online in areas such as business, computer science, engineering, information science, and much more.
