Quincy University and John Wood Community College are continuing efforts to make it easier for students to achieve degrees. It was announced today that there will be three new transfer program agreements.
JWCC graduates can transfer into the new agribusiness and supply chain management programs at QU in fall 2017. John Wood education majors will also be able to take advantage of the new agreement’s benefits in the fall at QU.
All three transfer program agreements – agribusiness, supply chain management and education – address employment needs expressed by businesses and K-12 institutions in the region.
“A key to the success of both institutions is to continue to find ways to work together, and these agreements are just one way QU is deepening partnerships within the Quincy area and beyond,” Phil Conover, QU’s chief operating officer said. “We look forward to working with John Wood on other initiatives to continue to be one of the top transfer schools for JWCC students.”
Agribusiness Four-Year Transfer Degree
JWCC will offer courses that will transfer into a Bachelor of Arts degree in general studies with a concentration in Agribusiness offered at QU. Students who begin at JWCC will earn a two-year Associate in Science degree in agribusiness, from which all completed courses will be accepted by QU as part of a 2+2 articulation agreement signed by college officials.
Supply Chain Management Four-Year Transfer Degree
Supply chain management spans numerous industries including warehousing, distribution, transportation, manufacturing and construction. College graduates and professionals in the field are in high demand in this region, across the country and throughout the world. Supply chain professionals find ways to increase productivity and quality while reducing costs.
JWCC will offer courses that will transfer into a Bachelor of Science in Business – Supply Chain Management degree offered by QU. Students who begin at JWCC will earn a two-year associate degree in supply chain management, from which all completed courses will be accepted by QU as part of a 2+2 articulation agreement signed by college officials.
Education Transfer Degree
Students who earn an Associate in Science education degree from JWCC who transfer to QU will now have additional education-specific courses accepted in addition to general education classes as part of QU’s Bachelor of Science in education.
“Expanding our partnership helps students, businesses and the community, all while making the best use of public and private resources,” Mike Elbe, JWCC president said. “It is a win for everyone.”
