Concordia-Chicago and Triton College sign articulation agreement for business degrees


CUC and TritonConcordia University Chicago and Triton College have signed an articulation agreement for the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Under the agreement, students from Triton College who successfully follow the course of study will be able to transfer their credits at face value, and complete their bachelor’s degree in the College of Business at Concordia-Chicago.

Students enrolled in the partnership program will complete an associate degree in either accounting and business administration, business management, or accounting and finance at Triton College in River Grove, IL. The final two years of study will be completed at Concordia University Chicago. The program has been designed so that it is possible to earn both an associate and bachelor’s degree within four years.

“We are looking forward to welcoming students from Triton College to earn their bachelor’s degrees here,” said Dr. O. John Zillman, Interim Senior Vice President for Academics at Concordia University Chicago. “By establishing this valuable partnership and through close collaboration, our two institutions are fostering the pathway to graduation and a chosen business profession. It is a very natural connection as we are both serving students in many of the same communities already.”

Under the agreement, students must meet the admissions requirements of Triton College and Concordia-Chicago. Both institutions will provide advisors to assist each student in planning their program of study to ensure a clear path to degree completion.

“This articulation agreement strengthens our partnership with Concordia University Chicago and provides Triton students with a seamless opportunity to further their education toward attaining the bachelor’s degree,” said Dr. Doug Olson, Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs at Triton College. “They can gain their foundational requirements and preliminary business experience at Triton and then transition to Concordia-Chicago with some solid affiliations with our business program.”

In early 2015, the two institutions collaborated on a separate agreement creating a seamless pathway for students seeking bachelor’s degrees in elementary or early childhood education.
