The Accelerated Masters of Business Administration allows students to fast-track their way to earning an MBA degree. Students take graduate courses while completing their undergraduate degree requirements and can finish both degrees in five years total.

How it Works

The Accelerated MBA program allows eligible students to take four MBA courses as general credits toward their BSU bachelor’s degree. Eligible students typically major or minor in Accounting, Business Administration and other qualified programs. These four graduate courses taken in the senior year will not substitute for undergraduate major/emphasis required courses. After graduation, Accelerated MBA students complete the remaining six Online MBA course requirements in as little as a year.
