Through the new agreement, students will be able to earn their Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree at NTC and then continue their education online through NMU by earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Workplace Leadership.
“The partnership between NMU and NTC on a program like the Applied Workplace Leadership program allows AAS graduates to utilize their technical, leadership, and communication skills in a real workplace setting. By extending the experiences of an associate's degree to the Applied Workplace Leadership bachelor's degree, the students, employers, and customers all benefit,” said Dr. Lubig, Associate Dean in the School of Education, Leadership & Public Service.
According to the agreement, the Applied Workplace Leadership degree is designed for non-traditional students and returning adult learners with completed associate degrees in any field or previous college credit. The courses in the program will help develop the skills that employers value in project leaders, team leaders and managers. The major emphasizes the use of critical thinking, ethical decision-making, goal-oriented communication, observational and quantitative data in decision-making and ways in which diversity can be leveraged for improved workplace climate and productivity.
Participating students can seamlessly transfer up to 90 credits from NTC, leaving 30 credits to complete at NMU.
