The dual B.S. in Business Administration / M.B.A. degree program affords students the opportunity to earn both a bachelor's and a master's degree in five years as opposed to the six years it would take to pursue the degrees separately. 

Students have the opportunity to choose from specific areas of interest for an added concentration in their B.S. degree such as entrepreneurship/small business management, financial management, financial planning, healthcare management, international business, or management.  Similarly, students can add a concentration to their MBA degree such as athletic administration, business analytics, healthcare management, hospitality and tourism management, innovation and entrepreneurship, organizational management, or risk management.  Students in this dual degree program achieve the student learning outcomes for both the B.S. Business Administration and MBA degrees.

Requirements for Major

Students are required to achieve and maintain a GPA of 3.0 in their undergraduate program in order to take graduate classes. Further, students must maintain a 3.0 in graduate classes to remain in the MBA portion of the program.
