Dean College students looking to pursue their education beyond the bachelor’s degree are invited to further their education through Dean’s new graduate degree articulation agreement with Nichols College. The agreement will provide an affordable, high quality advanced degree pathway for students interested in a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL), and Master of Science in Counterterrorism (MSC), and Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) programs.

"We are pleased to partner with Nichols College in expanding academic options for our students who wish to pursue a master’s degree in one of these high-growth career areas,” said Dr. Paula M. Rooney, president of Dean College.

Following completion of a bachelor’s degree program, qualified Dean graduates will receive the same opportunities and advantages offered to Nichols College graduates, including accelerated acceptance process for all applicants; automatic acceptance for students who have earned a 3.0 GPA at Dean; and a 10% discount on graduate courses, and standard room and board rate, based on availability of graduate housing each term.

For program requirements and inquires, students should contact Dean of the School of Business, Dr. P. Gerard Shaw, at 508-541-1790.
