Middlesex County College and Felician University signed an agreement that will allow MCC Business students to complete their Bachelor of Science degree in Business, and, if they choose, a Master of Business Administration from Felician.
The Bachelor’s-level and graduate classes will be held on the Middlesex County College campus in Edison.
“We are excited to partner with Middlesex County College to create this clear and convenient pathway for MCC students to earn their undergraduate degree in business and even go on for an MBA,” said Robert Evans, dean of the Felician University School of Business. “This agreement will allow students to continue their education at Felician without distance as an obstacle,” he added.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for MCC business students,” said Jeffrey Herron, dean of professional studies. “They can transfer the 64 credits required for our Business Administration Transfer degree directly to Felician's Business program, which means that they will not need to repeat courses completed at Middlesex. We have a very good relationship with the Business Department at Felician, and we believe the opportunity to expand our existing agreement to include the ability to pursue an MBA degree is an exciting development for our students, something we hope they will explore.”
Dr. Herron noted the two schools already have an agreement linking the Nursing programs.
“I've been able to observe our Nursing graduates participating in Felician's program,” he said. “The way Felician has supported our students is very impressive and demonstrates its commitment to our partnership. I feel that this opportunity to grow the already strong relationship between our institutions will be very beneficial to MCC students looking to pursue Bachelor's degrees.”
