Southern New Hampshire University has partnered with Major League Soccer club FC Dallas to serve as its Official Education Partner. Through this partnership, SNHU helps players, retired players and staff members achieve their goals with online education.
“Education is obviously important and SNHU gave us a great opportunity to be working full time and still take classes on this side. It’s the perfect situation," said FC Dallas' Tesho Akindele.
Recognized as a leader in player development, FC Dallas is also a leader in the classroom. The first MLS team to hire a full-time college director, FC Dallas sees over 100 of its youth players sign college commitments or receive some type of college scholarship each year.
