WVUP to offer online Supervisory Management program to Mountwest students
West Virginia University at Parkersburg and Mountwest Community and Technical College have signed an agreement allowing students who have completed an associate’s degree at MCTC to earn a bachelor’s degree at WVUP.
The articulation agreement signed by WVUP President Dr. Torie Jackson and MCTC President Josh Baker on Thursday, July 13, allows students who earned an Associate of Applied Science through Mountwest to earn a Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervisory Management through WVUP in an additional two years.
Jackson said the agreement allows a larger audience of community college students to have an opportunity to get a bachelor’s degree.
“Our goal is to have a more educated workforce in West Virginia, and we have to partner together sometimes to make that happen,” Jackson said. “What we see is this is the first of the pathways that we can create for students.”
Starting this fall, students with an AAS with 15 credit hours of general education coursework and 45 credits of program-specific coursework can enter the BAS in Supervisory Management program.
“What this degree is, is very flexible,” Jackson said. “They can take a variety of different online classes to fill up those 60 hours that are required for the second two years of a bachelor’s degree.”
WVUP’s BAS in Supervisory Management is an online degree program that will provide students with the necessary skills for first-line supervisors, including managerial accounting, process and quality management, strategic management, and marketing management.
