13 Months to a Business Studies Degree

With MxCC’s Accelerated Program (MAP), you can get your associate degree in just 13 months! MAP connects you with outstanding faculty and rigorous coursework. Even better, the unbeatable price makes it the most efficient and cost-effective way to complete your Associate Degree in Business Studies. Whether you’re looking to transfer to a four-year school or get the degree you need, let MxCC put you on the MAP!

Instead of enrolling in traditional 15-week semesters, MAP students complete their coursework in five-week mini-semesters. This means a more intense learning environment that moves you more quickly toward your degree. Even better, MAP courses are 95% online, putting you in charge of your school schedule.

In the MAP program you will:

  • Work with professors who are experts in online teaching.
  • Work closely with an MxCC mentor who will help you navigate college and the rigors of an accelerated degree.
  • Have access to a designated MAP librarian.
  • Complete your degree in just 13 months.
  • Learn in online communities of like-minded students.
  • Be connected to a local campus.



Students who have placed into ENG 101 and MAT 137 are eligible for the program. The program is ideal for students who are looking to take only two courses at a time, but who also understand that those courses move three times faster than traditional college courses. If you work hard and you’re ready for college, MAP may just be the program for you!

The program is currently accepting students in Business Studies.
