|This accelerated program is designed for accomplished business professionals not only to complete their bachelor’s degree but also move directly into the MBA. Building upon the congruence between the existing BA in Business Administration and Management and MBA core curricula, this option is offered to undergraduate students seeking to move directly into the MBA program as soon as they have completed at least 104 undergraduate credits including all GUR and major requirements for the BAM degree, with the exception of the senior project.
Admission requirements for this accelerated program include:
The following are the degree competencies for students in the Business Administration and Management degree:
Students will remain in the BAM portion of this accelerated program for no more than 2 years based on a tri-semester year, at which time they can be admitted to the regular BAM program to complete all of the undergraduate required courses. In preparation for the MBA level courses, students must complete 104 credits.
The Master’s Thesis will serve as the research project for both degrees. Students must take the core requirements of the MBA program and pursue the MBA thesis option. The BAM and MBA degrees will be awarded at the same time—when both degree course requirements are met.
In the event students withdraw from the MBA prior to completion, they must complete the equivalent of 128 credits to obtain their BA degree in BAM, including the 12 required undergraduate senior project courses.
