New transfer agreement gives Western Technical College students opportunity to further their college careers

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A new agreement is allowing Western Technical College students to further their education at the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

Beginning this fall,  students earning associate degrees in a technical field at any of Western’s 16 locations will be able to transfer into MSOE’s new Bachelor of Business Administration program, which is focused on Technical Sales.

Students who successfully completed an Associate Degree in Applied Sciences from any Western program after 2015 and meet admission requirements are eligible.

“Each year more than 8,000 of Wisconsin’s technical college graduates go on to continue their education at a four-year college, and many of them leave the state to achieve this goal,” said Dr. Ruther Barrett, chair of the MSOE Rader School of Business. “This new partnership with the WTCS provides a logical path for these graduates to stay in our state to pursue their bachelor’s degree and grow the Wisconsin economy.”
