Batavia, New York – Fashion Business students are getting a jump start on their Bachelor’s degree requirements thanks to administrators at Genesee Community College and LIM College. A new articulation agreement between the two institutions has been created so that GCC students have course and degree requirements defined early in their college careers, enabling them to enter as a junior in the program of their choice at LIM College.
Devoted exclusively to the business of fashion, LIM College offers a unique combination of strong academics and extensive hands-on experience to prepare students for a successful future in the fast-paced fashion industry. At the undergraduate level, LIM College offers majors in Fashion Merchandising, Management, Marketing and Visual Merchandising. Genesee’s Fashion Business degree program aligns well with these Bachelor’s of Business Administration degrees.
This agreement enables GCC students to take advantage of unique opportunities and benefits such as knowing the recommended course selections that secure acceptance into a four-year program at LIM. Upon successful completion of the outlined requirements in the agreement, students will be guaranteed admission to LIM in their desired major, provided they maintain a 2.5 or higher GPA.
“This is an exciting agreement for many of our Fashion Business students,” Patrick Walter, Transfer Coordinator at GCC said. “With LIM’s location in New York City, a major fashion hub, students will get extensive hands-on experience of the fashion industry, making them better prepared to enter the workforce.”
Genesee Community College has transfer agreements with over 45 different institutions. For further information, please contact Patrick Walter at 585-343-0055 ext. 6430 or go to: http://www.genesee.edu/Transfer.
