The Program: After successful completion of this accelerated five-year BS/MBA program, students will receive a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics and a master’s degree in business administration. Students of this program will be supervised by faculty advisors in Applied Mathematics and the College of Business Administration (CBA), and are expected to finish the core course requirements and most of the electives for the bachelor’s degree in the first three years of the program. Students are asked to formally apply to the accelerated program through the Graduate School during the third year of their bachelor’s degree. Upon acceptance, students will be expected to complete the remaining electives of the bachelor’s degree and 36 - 39 credits of graduate course work for the MBA degree in the last two years of the program, while registering for at least nine graduate credits in each semester of the last two years of the program. Students will be eligible to apply for an industrial graduate assistantship in these last two years of the program. Admission Requirements to the MBA portion of the degree program are: An overall GPA of 2.0 for all courses taken, a 3.0 GPA for courses in mathematics, and a 3.5 GPA in CBA courses. In addition, the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is required for admission. Scores above 500 are expected with scores of 600 or better preferred for students seeking a graduate assistantship. Information on the test is available at www.mba.com. The GRE, MCAT and LSAT are also approved for admission. Scores of 50% or better on all sections are expected.
