HOBOKEN, NJ/9/18/06—John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has launched Wiley Pathways, a new imprint of Higher Education textbooks designed to serve the growing group of students, often working and with families, who are pursuing their post-secondary education with a strong career focus. All Wiley Pathways books focus on the fundamentals and use a modular format with clear, concise language and built-in resources that promote independent learning. They are affordably priced at under $60.
The name Wiley Pathways reflects the diverse paths of today’s students many of whom may be changing their life, beginning or managing a family and entering, advancing, or changing careers. The books are designed to accommodate flexibility in educational approach, and their development process has been guided by the consideration of life and career objectives.
“The educational landscape is rapidly changing,” said Bonnie Lieberman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Wiley’s Higher Education business, “courses are offered in more flexible and innovative ways than ever before, attracting students from a variety of backgrounds, with different learning styles and unique educational goals. Our Wiley Pathways textbooks are designed to bridge the gap and get all students on the path to learning.”
Books in the Wiley Pathways imprint will be published in career clusters focusing on subjects with high employment growth. The first three clusters releasing this fall are in Emergency Management, Health Care Administration, and Business Management.
