Independence Community College is pleased to announce a new pathway program with Baker University. The program provides a strategic transition between ICC’s associate degree in business administration and Baker’s bachelor’s degree in business administration. After earning an associate degree at ICC, students can finish their bachelor’s degree through Baker in as little as two years.
Baker’s BBA program is offered online, allowing students to remain in their communities and work around their schedules.
“It is important for students to know they have a path forward in their education journey after graduating from ICC,” said Bowhay. “Students are more entrepreneurial than ever and want the hands-on experience that ICC and Baker can offer them. A partnership between our two great institutions is a natural fit because both are dedicated to helping students succeed in reaching their dreams."
Pathways like this, paired with ICC’s Rural Area Development focus, help area students access additional educational resources without leaving the community.
“At ICC, we are educating future business leaders to be the next generation of thinkers, entrepreneurs, educators, and innovators,” concluded Bowhay. “Leaders, like businesses, aren’t just born. They are developed and nurtured in an educational environment that encourages innovative thinking about real-world problems facing business leaders. This program will help any person looking to strengthen their abilities to lead others, develop a business, and change organizations for the better."
