ULM and Delta collaborate to offer business degree

Published January 06, 2015

The University of Louisiana at Monroe and Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC) recently expanded on an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide additional support for those seeking degrees in business.


Students enrolled in LDCC’s Associate of Applied Science degree program will now be able to transfer to ULM and work towards earning a Bachelor of Business Administration in General Business. The agreement is effective Jan. 6, 2015.

"This continues our ongoing efforts to partner with Delta in providing the citizens of the region the opportunity to pursue the expanded education available for those seeking jobs in high demand fields," said ULM President Dr. Nick J. Bruno.

ULM and LDCC first signed the original MOU in 2008 establishing course and program transfer and articulation agreements. The overall goal of the agreement was to identify high student-interest degree programs at each institution and develop specific degree program articulation agreements, allowing a smooth transfer of credits from one institution to the other. This improves the transfer process for students.


"The partnership between Louisiana Delta Community College and the University of Louisiana at Monroe continues to underscore the importance of educational collaboration in sustaining the development of our greatest resource-our students," said Dr. Barbara Hanson, LDCC Chancellor. "LDCC is honored to work with such a fine institution."

ULM will offer credit exams at no cost to LDCC students in this program for ULM's Principles of Management, Legal Environment of Business, Business Communication, and Principles of Marketing courses.

In November 2014, ULM and LDCC signed a 2+2 agreement allowing LDCC students earning the Associate of Science Louisiana Transfer – Biological Sciences degree to transfer to ULM to complete a Bachelor of Science  degree in Medical Laboratory Science.
