Schools agree to trans­fer deal

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS - By News

SUNY Cobleskill Pres­i­dent Mar­ion Teren­zio and SUNY Em­pire State Col­lege Pres­i­dent Merodie Han­cock an­nounced Tues­day an agree­ment to open a new path­way for busi­ness stu­dents to earn a grad­u­ate de­gree.

The ar­tic­u­la­tion agree­ment al­lows qual­i­fied Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion stu­dents at SUNY Cobleskill to trans­fer smoothly into the Master of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion in Busi­ness Man­age­ment pro­gram at SUNY Em­pire. The agree­ment im­me­di­ately en­ables SUNY Cobleskill BBA stu­dents to cross-reg­is­ter for up to nine cred­its of SUNY Em­pire MBA course­work, and es­tab­lishes a frame­work for de­vel­op­ing a com­bined BBAMBA pro­gram reg­is­tered jointly by both in­sti­tu­tions.

“SUNY Cobleskill is ded­i­cated to cre­at­ing learn­ing path­ways tai­lored to con­tin­u­ous and suit­able stu­dent progress from sec­ondary school through to their de­sired goals,” said SUNY Cobleskill Pres­i­dent Mar­ion Teren­zio. “This new part­ner­ship with SUNY Em­pire State Col­lege gives our busi­ness stu­dents a valu­able op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue seam­lessly to a grad­u­ate de­gree pro­gram.”

“To­day’s agree­ment with SUNY Cobleskill is all about get­ting stu­dents to com­plete their MBA in the most con­ve­nient, time- and cost-ef­fi­cient man­ner pos­si­ble, while at the same time, en­sur­ing stu­dents re­ceive the high­qual­ity SUNY ed­u­ca­tion they ex­pect, need and de­serve,” said Merodie A. Han­cock, pres­i­dent of SUNY Em­pire State Col­lege. “My thanks go to Pres­i­dent Mar­ion Teren­zio, Provost Su­san Zim­mer­mann, and their hard-work­ing staffs, for mak­ing to­day’s agree­ment pos­si­ble and I look for­ward to of­fer­ing ad­di­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties, and even greater ac­cess, to our grad­u­ate pro­grams for more Cobleskill stu­dents.”

To qual­ify for cross-reg­is­tra­tion, SUNY Cobleskill BBA stu­dents must have suc­cess­fully com­pleted at least 75 cred­its of course­work and have a cu­mu­la­tive GPA of 3.0 or above. The com­bined BBA-MBA pro­gram, out­lined by the agree­ment, will al­low SUNY Cobleskill BBA stu­dents to ap­ply for the pro­gram af­ter com­plet­ing 60 cred­its of course­work with a cu­mu­la­tive GPA of 3.2 or above at the time of ad­mis­sion. Ap­pli­ca­tion fees, ap­pli­ca­tion es­says and let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion will be waived for suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants.
