Business Department Implements Several New Articulation Agreements Offering Students the Option to Pursue a Four-Year Degree

Several new articulation agreements have been implemented by the Business Department at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. Agreements were signed with Hibbing Community College (HCC) in Hibbing, Minn.; Inver Hills Community College in Inver Grove Heights, Minn.; and Pine Technical College in Pine City, Minn. 

Graduates with an associate of science degree in business administration from Hibbing Community College could consider pursuing a bachelor of science degree in business management from the U of M, Crookston. Associate of applied science graduates in industrial systems technology from HCC could pursue their bachelor of manufacturing management. Both degrees are offered online and on-campus.

For graduates earning an applied science degree from Inver Hills Community College, pursuing a bachelor of science in accounting at the U of M, Crookston would be an option. Those interested in pursuing a bachelor of science in business management could do so by earning their applied science degree from Inver Hills in either contemporary business or international business.

Pine Technical College graduates with an associate of applied science degree in accounting would also be able to pursue a bachelor of science in accounting at the U of M, Crookston.

Articulation agreements are formal arrangements transferring a defined set of academic credits between an academic program of one institution, usually a two-year post-secondary institution, to a program within a college or campus of the University of Minnesota system in order to fulfill general education or program requirements. Benefits of an articulation agreement include a reduced chance of retaking the same coursework; and the opportunity to move from an associate degree to a bachelor's degree at the U of M, Crookston.
