A new partnership between Gateway Technical College and Cardinal Stritch University will help make the transition to a bachelor degree program easier for GTC graduates.

The agreement was signed Friday during a special announcement at Gateway’s iMET center in Sturtevant, a story in The Journal Times reads.

In a nutshell, students who graduate from Gateway and want to continue their education at a four-year school can move more seamlessly into a business and then master’s of business because more credits will transfer. During the first year, business degrees will be the only area of study, but both college presidents hope to expand the program’s scope as time goes on, the story continues.

Bryan Albrecht is the president of Gateway, and James P. Loftus is the president of Cardinal Stritch.

“No one institution alone can achieve all of the goals they might have in their lives, but collectively together we’re here to support them,” Albrecht is quoted as saying.

The credit-transfer opportunity will only be available at first to students who attend Stritch’s Pleasant Prairie and/or take classes online.
