Master of Business Administration: Five-Year B.S./M.B.A.

This program is designed for traditional undergraduate students who have demonstrated an ability to excel and a desire to obtain a Master of Business Administration degree in a minimal amount of time. A minimum of 156 credits are required to receive both the Bachelor of Science in Business Management (any concentration) and Master of Science in Accounting degrees. Of these, 120 credits are completed in the undergraduate program and 36 credits in the graduate program. During senior year, students take 2 graduate courses in addition to their regular undergraduate schedule. 

Students with 30 credits remaining entering their senior year take a total of 18 credits each semester (15 undergraduate and 3 graduate credits). There is no extra cost to the student for these credits during their undergraduate study if they have been accepted into the five-year program. A preferred approach is that students accelerate their undergraduate studies prior to their senior year and enter their senior year with 24 credits remaining in the undergraduate program. This approach would allow seniors to complete 12 undergraduate credits and 3 graduate credits, 15 total credits, in each semester of their final year. 

Students should apply to the Master of Business Administration program during the spring of their junior year and must have an overall G.P.A. of 3.5 to be accepted into the five-year program. At the time of acceptance, students will be assigned a graduate faculty advisor in addition to their undergraduate faculty advisor.

The student’s undergraduate record must qualify for waivers in four graduate level courses. Course waivers are determined by the M.B.A. Program Director.
