ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An agreement between Albany State University and Albany Technical College will allow students to get started in their careers while continuing their education.

Thursday the presidents for both schools signed an agreement that creates a partnership in the field of Business Logistics. Albany Tech students who successfully earn an associates degree in Business Logistics can move into the corresponding bachelor's degree program at Albany State.

"The most important thing is students who start work as artisans they have an opportunity to go as far in their technical field as they possibly can, get the education they need through the associates degree and bachelors degree afterwards to be promoted to be managers," said Dr. Anthony Parker, Albany Technical College President.

"When our economy improves and people go back to work this is going to create more job opportunities this is going to brand Albany Georgia as a place where one can get and education in logistics to be able to be able to provide that service," said Dr. Everett Freeman, Albany State University President.

The two and two agreement is the seventh of its kind between the two colleges.
