NORWALK - Students interested in a bachelor's degree program in business are being encouraged to consider an automotive marketing management program offered through Cerritos College and Northwood University.Northwood is a traditional four-year private university based in Michigan. Students in the program attend all classes on Cerritos College's campus and take higher-level courses from Northwood instructors after meeting general degree requirements through Cerritos College courses. Automotive students may also tailor their bachelor's degree to reflect an emphasis in automotive management. The combined course offerings from both Cerritos College and Northwood University comprise the bachelor's degree program and offer students substantial savings, school officials said. The first three years of the four-year degree cost $20 per unit. The final year of the degree is offered at Northwood's tuition rate but still takes place locally at Cerritos College's campus.
