Eligible students can transfer credits to UW-Platteville's master's in project management program
4.11.2012 - PLATTEVILLE, Wis. - The University of Wisconsin-Platteville and its Distance Learning Center (UW-Platteville Online) have reached credit transfer agreements with several extensions of the University of California, Oakland, Calif. The new partnerships give UC students an opportunity to join one of the most highly regarded graduate-level project management programs in the nation.
The seven individual project management agreements are with the following UC extensions: Irvine, Santa Cruz, Berkeley, Davis, Riverside, San Diego, and Los Angeles. The extensions form the continuing education branch of UC.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain even deeper insight into the project management field through the eyes of others," said Bill Haskins, coordinator of UW-Platteville's master's program in project management. "At the same time, we want to build a bridge between every possible educational institution so that students, wherever they may be, can earn their master's degree and reach their potential in the project management field."
For example, a student who completes project management studies at one of the UC extensions can then transfer up to 12 credits, about four full-time courses, to the master of science in project management at UW-Platteville. The school maintains similar degree-driven transfer agreements with institutions nationwide.
UW-Platteville provides eight degrees entirely online. Visit www.GoUWP.com, call 800.362.5460 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
