Minneapolis—October 15, 2009—Walden University’s Web site, www.WaldenU.edu, has received the University Standard of Excellence WebAward from the Web Marketing Association (WMA). Independent expert judges from around the world reviewed sites in 96 industries from 47 countries for the WebAward Competition, which has set the standard for excellence in Web site development for 13 years.
