(Poteau, Oklahoma) -- Beginning this spring, Northeastern State University's College of Business & Technology and Carl Albert State College are partnering to enhance educational and workforce opportunities in southeastern Oklahoma.


Individuals with an associate degree can now enroll in a pilot program where they can take business core courses towards a bachelor’s degree, locally.


The NSU College of Business & Technology will deliver business core classes via a video conference to CASC at its Poteau and Sallisaw campuses. Day and evening classes will be available.


NSU also offers a 100% online MBA program for those with a bachelor’s degree.


An open house will be held at 10 a.m. on Nov. 4 on the CASC Poteau campus. There, interested parties can learn more about the pilot program, meet with NSU advisors and admissions staff, as well as the NSU CBT dean and Business Department chair.


"This initiative between CASC and NSU will not only help their graduates further their careers, but will also help economic development in northeast Oklahoma through workforce development,” said Dr. Janet Buzzard, NSU College of Business & Technology dean. “Attracting new industry and helping existing industry expand begins with a skilled and educated workforce."


“This is an exciting opportunity for CASC students to achieve their educational goals in an expedited, accessible manner,” said Dr. Marc Willis, CASC vice president of Academic Affairs. “The expanded partnership between NSU and CASC strengthens the long-standing relationship between the institutions and emphasizes the commitment of both to the success of our students and our communities.”
