Agreement provides path for Madison College students to finish bachelor’s degree online at UW-Madison

MADISON, Wis. — Madison College students studying liberal arts or business management will now have a direct path to complete a bachelor’s degree in business with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Online.

The option is thanks to new transfer agreements that guarantee admission into select online programs with the Wisconsin School of Business.

A signing ceremony was held at Madison College’s Truax campus on Tuesday.

“It’s very unlikely… these days that people know exactly what they want to do on day one of college, and that’s their linear path all the way to a career. So Madison College gives students an opportunity to sort of check some things out if you will and make sure that path is clear,” Madison College provost Dr. Turina Bakken said.

Additional schools and colleges at UW-Madison, as well as other two-year colleges, will be involved in future agreements.
