Southern business grads have new option

Sep 12, 2012

Graduates from Southern University's two-year college in Shreveport will now be able to earn a four-year business degree at Grambling State University.

The two colleges announced this new option Tuesday.

Graduates from Southern's Shreveport campus with an associate's degree in business management, event management or accounting can enroll in Grambling State's four-year bachelor's business degree program.

The colleges say all course credits obtained at Southern will be accepted toward the four-year degree.

Southern-Shreveport has about 100 students in the business program and graduates 25 to 30 with associate degrees each semester. Officials say the goal is for four to five Southern graduates to transition to Grambling each semester.
