Bowie State University Partners With Two Community Colleges for Business Education

Bowie State University, the historically Black educational institution in Maryland, has entered into an agreement with Prince George’s Community College and Howard Community College to offer bachelor’s degree programs in business administration to students at the Laurel College Center. The center was established in 2001 by the community colleges.

With this new partnership, students pursuing associate’s degrees at the two community colleges will be able to take courses in Bowie State’s accredited program at the Laurel College Center leading to a bachelor’s degree in business administration. The program enables students to take courses exploring a wide range of business fields, including banking and finance, information systems, and entrepreneurship.

“Bowie State’s partnership with Laurel College Center means that more people will have greater access to high-quality higher education and make a positive impact in their communities, advancing public education for the public good,” said Aminta H. Breaux, president of Bowie State University.

Prince George’s Community College, headquartered in Largo, Maryland, enrolls more than 12,000 students. African Americans are 71 percent of the student body.

Howard Community College, in Columbia, Maryland, enrolls about 9,500 students. African Americans are 29 percent of total enrollments.
