In five years of full-time study, students earn a B.S. in Business Administration in any specialization and an MBA. The program admission is competitive and it is focused on highly motivated freshman and eligible transfers who have maintained a 3.0 GPA (or equivalent) in both high school and college. Students who are admitted to this program must meet with the Undergraduate Business Administration Chair before enrolling in courses since the program requires a prescribed course sequencing in order to complete the program in five years.
This program is designed to allow students to enter Mercy College as an undergraduate, and by following a specific curriculum, graduate in summer of the fourth year with a B.S. in Business Administration degree. With an additional year of prescribed graduate study, students will be able to earn an MBA. Twelve graduate credits in the MBA program count toward both the B.S. and MBA degrees.
Highly motivated freshman and eligible transfers who have maintained a 3.0 GPA (or equivalent) in both high school and college may apply for the program. In the fall of their fourth year, students in the B.S./M.B.A. program will be evaluated by the Graduate and Undergraduate Business Administration Chairs for a review of their continued qualifications and matriculation to the MBA program. Students must have a 3.0 overall and major GPA to matriculate to the MBA program in the fourth year spring quarter. Those students who do not meet the GPA requirement will complete 12 credits of open electives in the fourth year spring semester and exit the B.S./MBA program and graduate with a B.S. in Business Administration degree in May of the fourth year.
