Durham College and Trent University announced today a new articulation agreement that will enable qualified graduates of several of the college’s Business Administration programs to enter Trent University’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program with two years of advanced standing and complete their degree requirements in only two years of study.
The agreement, was signed by Don Lovisa, Durham College president and Dr. Steven E. Franklin, Trent University president and vice-chancellor at the college’s Oshawa campus on February 27, will see graduates of the college’s three-year Business Administration – Accounting; Business Administration – Human Resources; and Business Administration – Marketing pursue their BBA at the Trent University Oshawa Thornton Road Campus, or at the university’s Symons Campus in Peterborough, Ont.
“This new agreement is another example of how the student experience comes first at Durham College,” said Lovisa. “We’re very pleased to be able to provide qualified graduates from our four business administration programs a seamless option to earn their business administration degree at Trent University by using their college credentials.”
“Trent University has a long and proud partnership with Durham College, creating pathways for students between college and university,” said Franklin. “This new articulation agreement draws on that strong history as well as the strengths of both our institutions in building distinctive business programs that allow students to prepare for successful careers and adapt to a rapidly changing world.”
With the addition of this new agreement there are now more than 10 diploma-to-degree pathways in place between Durham College and Trent University, providing degree completion opportunities for graduates of the college’s business, general arts and science, computing, environmental, pharmaceutical and food science technology programs. In addition, several new agreements are also under development between the two institutions.
