The UMKC American Degree Transfer Program (UMKC ADTP)  is a preparation course designed to provide students with the academic knowledge, skills, and confidence to join and successfully complete a bachelor’s degree at an US university. This is a 2+2 degree program pathway whereby students study 2 years at TMC and transfer to University of Missouri- Kansas City (UMKC) to study 2 more years to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A) program. The course modules teach a balance of business and general subjects to give students a solid understanding of key concepts and practices in business and related fields with the aim that students will be able to

• Analyse and solve problems using a range of approaches;
• Understand the fundamental theories that underpin key business practices;
• Apply business and scientific concepts to practical situations
• Demonstrate the competencies required to successfully progress to the final part of an American degree program

Notes:

  1. This is only a preparatory program, not a degree program.
  2. The certificate obtained upon completion of the UMKC American Degree Transfer Program is awarded by TMC Academy.
  3. The admission to UMKC is not guaranteed and is subject to (amongst other things) UMKC’s admission criteria, issuance of necessary visa(s) and any other conditions imposed by the relevant authorities or UMKC.
  4. Students spend 2 years in TMC before transferring to UMKC for another 2 years

Course assessment
Assessment of the modules includes examinations, assignments, projects, presentations, class tests, and/or practical tests.

 

Mode of Delivery
Lectures, tutorials and independent learning are employed. To make sure that students have a clear understanding of the concepts, tutorials are used to re-emphasize the key areas.

Independent learning involves pupils taking the initiative in recognizing learning requirements and undertaking activities to meet them. These activities could take the form of research, tutorial exercises, review questions and coursework.
