Germanna bizz school

Germanna President Janet Gullickson and UMW President Troy Paino signed an agreement that makes it possible to earn a bachelor's degree in business in just two-and-a-half years.

The University of Mary Washington and Germanna Community College signed an agreement on July 11 that creates a fast track to earning college business degrees in the Fredericksburg region.

The pathway program allows students to complete both an associate’s and a bachelor’s degree online in about two-and-a-half years, saving time and money.

“This is all about the students,” said UMW President Troy Paino. “This is about removing obstacles, creating access and opportunities, lowering costs, accelerating time to degrees. All of those things are really going to make a difference, not only in the students’ lives but in our community.”

The ultra-accelerated route provided by the two schools starts with Germanna’s “College Everywhere” program, which gives students the opportunity to earn a two-year associate’s degree remotely in just 12 months. Those who transfer to UMW can then finish the major in business administration, also online, within an additional 18 months.
