 CGCC, NAU Partner to Offer Business Administration Degree

Chandler-Gilbert Community College and Northern Arizona University are expanding their partnership to include a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree.  This degree program will allow students to complete their first two years of study at CGCC, and then transfer to NAU to complete the last two years of their coursework - all without leaving CGCC’s Pecos campus.

Deanna Hughes, Program Coordinator for the NAU CGCC Campus, said that this collaborative effort offers students the option to earn their BBA degree from NAU without having to move to Flagstaff.

We strongly encourage students to complete their Associate’s degree at CGCC for their 100-200 level classes (64 credits), and then they’ll be ready to start the NAU program of 300-400 level classes (56 credits),” Hughes said.  “The class sizes will be capped at no more than 30, so that students will have that personal attention and the opportunity to get to know their classmates.”
