UMPI BABA Marketing Degree Plan

From Degree Forum Wiki

BABA Marketing Degree Plan[edit]

Here is a BABA Marketing Degree plan for the University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI) as of approximately July of 2022. Please make sure that the suggestions are still valid before beginning to follow this plan.

Credit to DegreeForum members ss20ts, ashkir, and others for making it possible to plan alt credits for degrees at UMPI.

The alternative credit courses were handpicked using experience from previous students as to what courses will be the easiest and quickest courses to take. In places with multiple courses listed, the first course is assumed to be the fastest/easiest course to take.

Requirements for UMPI[edit]

  • 30 credits worth of courses must be completed with UMPI
  • Students must take most of the UL concentration courses at UMPI.

Tips on Order in Which to Complete Courses[edit]

Start with Sophia.org. Unfortunately, Sophia only allows 2 courses open at one time, so do only one course at a time that has touchstones (written assignments). Once done with Sophia, do Instantcert. Finally do Study.com

How Long Will It Take To Complete This Degree Once I Finish All the Alterative Credits?[edit]

How long to complete depends on various factors such as experience, time commitment, the efficiency of studying, etc. However, considering you spend at least 20 hours a week on your studies, completing this degree could take 1-2 sessions @ a cost of $1400 tuition per session.

How the General Education Curriculum Works[edit]

The GEC of UMPI is one of the most complex and hardest to understand of any college.

Some key things to keep in mind

  • You need at least one course to meet each objective
  • One course can meet multiple objectives
  • You need 40 unique credit hours worth of courses
