Ohio University ITS alums begin at Progressive Insurance with a discernable advantage over other collegiate hires due to the highly specialized and cutting-edge curriculum of the J. Warren McClure School. The unique mix of technical, business and interpersonal communication courses included in the program produce exceptionally well rounded and extremely valuable employees. The ITS program, by no mistake, also instills initiative as an essential trait in its grads. This is evident by the fact that 33 of the 39 ITS grads hired, are still with Progressive and that 11 have earned roles outside of their initial hiring position which require increased accountability, leadership and aptitude. - Thomas Cunningham, IT Business Leader, Progressive Insurance, 2006
