On Tuesday, November 7, Snow College and Utah State University will announce a new partnership to begin Fall 2018. The announcement event will be held at 11:30 AM in Founders Hall on the Snow College Ephraim Campus.
The new partnership between the USU Jon M. Huntsman School of Business and the Snow College Business Department will provide a way for Snow College students to remain in Ephraim while earning a USU bachelor’s degree in either business administration or marketing.. Students who complete their two-year Associate of Science Business degree at Snow can seamlessly move into their third and fourth years as they complete a USU bachelor’s degree.
The format is unique. USU courses will be taught during traditional daytime hours in the Snow College Business Building. Students will have access to Snow College student services and activities, while also taking advantage of the vast opportunities and resources available from the Huntsman School of Business. Additionally, the exclusive Huntsman Scholar program will be available to qualified students taking USU classes at Snow College.
USU has committed to deliver courses in a face-to-face format where possible. USU professor, Dr. Chalon Keller, will both teach courses and serve as the liaison between the USU Logan Campus and USU’s students in Ephraim. Other USU professors will also travel to Ephraim to deliver face-to-face content. Dr. Jim Davis, management department head from the Huntsman School, is enthusiastic about the partnership, saying, “The USU/Snow partnership challenges all of us to have vision, to suspend disbelief, and to ‘Dare Mighty Things’ together!”
Snow College President Gary Carlston applauds the partnership: “Snow College is pleased to join with Utah State University in offering this exciting opportunity for students. Working together, we can provide a great benefit to students and increased support for economic development in our six-county service area.”
In addition to the two bachelor’s degrees in business administration and marketing, the Huntsman School will also deliver minors in entrepreneurship and technical sales. Both minors could be valuable additions to the business-related majors and also to the two bachelor programs at Snow College in commercial music and software engineering.
