Dr. Rebecca Ashford, president, Chattanooga State Community College and Dr. Harley Knowles, president, Tennessee Wesleyan University have signed an articulation agreement between the two institutions. This agreement will allow a smooth transfer into a bachelor of science degree at TWU for graduates with an associate of applied science degree in either Chattanooga State Management or Entrepreneurship concentrations. 

“The TWU degree offers a BS in Management through a program called Management Excellence,” explained Jake Stanford, department head and associate professor of Business at Chattanooga State.  

“Our 36-hour Management Excellence Program can be completed in approximately four semesters and all courses are accelerated,” stated Dr. Martha Maddox, professor, and associate dean, TWU Goodfriend School of Business. “We also offer the following areas of emphases: accounting, human resource management, healthcare management, and industrial management to complete the degree. Each emphasis has either 18 or 21 hours.” 

Entrance into the TWU program requires students be at least 23 years of age, have three years of work experience, and have completed at least 60 semester hours with a minimum 2.0 GPA or an associate degree from Chattanooga State. The program is offered in-person, online or through a hybrid approach. 

"Chattanooga State is proud to add Tennessee Wesleyan University as its newest academic educational partner, officials said.
