UW-Platteville Online signs new credit pact with UCLA Extension

Students can apply coursework toward online master's degree in integrated supply chain management

Platteville, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Platteville and its Distance Learning Center (www.GoUWP.com) announced today a new credit transfer agreement with the University of California (UCLA) Extension, the continuing and professional education division of UCLA. The partnership gives UCLA Extension students the opportunity to turn certificate coursework into credits to put toward UW-Platteville’s online Master of Science in Integrated Supply Chain Management (MSISCM) program.

“For many students the next step on their educational journey is to leverage certificates they earn toward a graduate degree. This partnership provides a perfect way to do that,” said David Heimerdinger, coordinator of UW-Platteville’s master’s program in integrated supply chain management. 

UW-Platteville’s integrated online MSISCM program examines the interplay and coordination of business, industrial studies, and engineering, while providing real-world capabilities that stretch beyond a typical master’s degree in business.

Under the unique credit transfer agreement, coursework for UCLA Extension’s Purchasing, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management Certificate can equal up to 12 online graduate credits, which is equivalent to four full-time courses in UW-Platteville’s MSISCM program. UW-Platteville fosters similar credit partnerships nationwide primarily through its online programs.

UW-Platteville, a pioneer in distance education, provides eight degrees entirely online: master’s degrees in organizational change leadership, project management, criminal justice, engineering, distance educational leadership and integrated supply chain management along with bachelor’s degrees in business administration and criminal justice.
