The MBA 3+2 concurrent enrollment program is a very selective program that combines an approved undergraduate program with the MBA program. This program is available in conjunction with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Finance, or Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Due to the time frame of the program, applicants can only have one major. The student must graduate in five years with both degrees. Admission into the 3+2 Concurrent Enrollment Program is not an entitlement. Applicants are only accepted to begin in the Fall semester with the application and admissions process starting the preceding Spring semester.
