Through a carefully designed course of study, earn your BS in Business Administration or Management and your MBA in just five years. In your undergraduate program, you can concentrate in General Business, Accounting, Finance, Business Management, International Business Management, Marketing Management, or Sport Management. You can begin your graduate studies in your senior year and earn six graduate credits at no additional cost. In your fifth year, you can complete all requirements for the MBA.
This program option is designed for Albertus Magnus College undergraduate Day students who have demonstrated an ability to excel and a desire to obtain an Albertus MBA degree in a minimal amount of time. A minimum of 156 total credits are required to receive both BS and MBA degrees. Of these, 120 are in the undergraduate program and 36 in the MBA program. This will include a major in Business Administration or Business Management in any of the concentrations currently being offered. During their senior year, students take two graduate courses in addition to their regular undergraduate schedule.
Students with 30 credits remaining as they enter their senior year take a total of 18 credits each semester (15 undergraduate and 3 graduate credits). There is no extra cost for these credits during their undergraduate study if they have been accepted into the five year program prior to their senior year. 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 BS 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 can expect a similar experience to that which they have encountered in their undergraduate program at Albertus. Classes are small and provide ample opportunity for interaction between students and faculty. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor who is a full time member of the Albertus faculty.
