Emily Klassanos ’16
BA/MBA accounting majors from the classes of 2014, 2015, and 2016 are employed in their field – many had job offers before graduating. The accelerated program allows you to earn your MBA at the same time as your undergraduate business degree. You’ll fast-track your graduate studies by completing your courses faster and earning two degrees in five years.
Undergraduate students enrolled in this program can take up to 6 MBA classes at half the graduate tuition cost. Students can begin taking MBA classes during their junior year, one night a week, either in our flexible hybrid format or completely online.
