A new partnership will allow students at Greenville Technical College to pursue a bachelor’s degree in business administration at The Citadel in Charleston. 

The two schools have signed an articulation agreement that allows GTC students to enroll online at The Citadel’s Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business, according to a news release. Under the agreement, students who earn an associate degree will have the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with four semesters of study.

“We are pleased to offer our graduates a clear path to a bachelor’s degree from The Citadel,” said Dr. Jermaine Whirl, vice president of learning and workforce development with Greenville Technical College, in a statement. “Our mission is to transform lives through education, and this agreement allows us to partner to build on a strong academic foundation and extend the transformation that students begin with us.”

The Tommy & Victoria Baker School of Business at The Citadel is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review, the release said.

“Students studying business online receive the same high-quality content from the same expert faculty as those attending the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business in person on The Citadel campus,” said Michael Weeks, chairman of business administration for the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business, in a statement.
