Programs of Study

At MMCC, we focus on a whole-student approach to learning. We understand that each student has individual goals, and therefore each student needs to travel a path that specifically accomplishes that goal.

Different Tracks for Different Goals:

MMCC offers four types of training and program tracks, and within most of those tracks, students can select from short-term training options, two-year associates degrees, or transfer degrees that integrate seamlessly into the four-year programs at other colleges and universities. That means that regardless of whether you’re a hands-on, practical learner or more comfortable dealing with theories and concepts, whether you’re looking to join the workforce in one to two years or whether you’d like to go on to a bachelors or beyond, MMCC has something that will work for you. And at an exceptional value.

Ashlee Ritchie was my instructor for my first Accounting classes. I knew right away that I had chosen the right career field for myself, and Ashlee was a great mentor. At the beginning of my second semester of my freshman year, Ashlee recommended me for a cost accounting position at Brown Machine in Beaverton. I interviewed and was offered the job. They were willing to work with my college class schedule, and the hands-on experience has been great! I have now been there for two years. I am learning about the accounting profession through direct application. Some of my duties include time cards for payroll, Accounts Payable, help with cost overview and inventory control, month-end/year-end reporting, and assistance with auditors. I will start at Northwood this May to finish my 3+1 Accounting degree as part of the adult program, where I will take classes online and at night while I continue to work full time. Doing the 3+1 between MMCC and Northwood has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I will virtually earn my degree in four years and be nearly debt-free as a result of dual enrollment, scholarships, and the job that MMCC helped me to get.” [-]
