Four new business pathways added to partnership to benefit students
Northwood University and Macomb Community College have signed four new articulation agreements and renewed six others for a seamless transition to Northwood for Macomb students wishing to complete a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
The new agreements are in cybersecurity, hospitality management, marketing and management information systems, while accounting, automotive marketing and management, entrepreneurship, international business, management and sports management were renewed.
“Streamlining the path from associates to bachelor’s degrees positions our students for in-demand career opportunities, supports degree completion and develops vital talent to sustain and grow local business and industry,” said Leslie Kellogg, Ed.D., provost and vice president of the Learning Unit, Macomb Community College. “Student success is the focus of everything we do, and transfer agreements like the ones we have signed with Northwood University propel that objective forward.”
Students who earn their associate degree at Macomb may be able to transfer as many as 90 credits to Northwood University to complete their bachelor’s degrees. This reduces the cost of the overall education, saving the student time and money in the process.
“At Northwood, our graduates drive economic and social progress which aligns well with Macomb’s mission to transform lives and communities through the power of education, enrichment and economic development,” said Kristin Stehouwer, Ph.D., provost and vice president of Academics at Northwood University. “We are pleased to build on our strong relationship with Macomb Community College, Michigan’s largest community college, in helping students seamlessly complete their bachelor’s degrees from Northwood through classes in Macomb, online or in Midland, Michigan.”
The new and renewed agreements took effect upon the signing of the articulation agreements Jan. 11, 2023.
