Five-Year Combined BS/MBA Program

To meet the requirements to become a Certified Public Accountant, most states (including Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and after December 31, 2011, Pennsylvania) require candidates to accumulate a minimum of 150 credit hours of higher education.  Our Combined BS/MBA Program was developed in response to this requirement, and allows qualified students the opportunity to efficiently earn both a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and a Master of Business Administration degree with an Accounting specialization.

Students interested in this BS/MBA degree program should apply to the College of Graduate and Continuing Education as early as December of their junior year.  Criteria for acceptance into the combined program include:

  • the student's previous academic performance,
  • GMAT score,
  • letters of recommendation and
  • statement of purpose. 
With judicious course scheduling, most students can complete the program within five academic years.
