Beginning in fall 2018, students can earn two degrees in as little as five years – saving time and money in the process! Siena Heights University’s Accelerated Bachelor’s to MBA Program is available to students on the Adrian campus. Students accepted to the program are eligible to take up to three MBA courses as part of their undergraduate program – at the undergraduate tuition rate!
Unlike many other programs, SHU’s is open to students in many different majors, including nursing, engineering, the sciences and humanities. Undergraduate students in any major are eligible who have completed foundational courses with a 2.5 or higher GPA in the following subject areas:
- Micro- and macro-economics
If foundational courses have not been completed, MBA leveling via Peregrine modules in these subject areas will be required. (Peregrine leveling modules are not classes; they are assessments and are not for credit and can be completed sooner and are less expensive).
Students are admitted to the program within the last two semesters of their bachelor's degree coursework, i.e., with less than 30 credits left to complete. No less than a 3.25 cumulative GPA required at the time of entry into the Accelerated Bachelor’s to MBA Program.
Students in freshman or sophomore years are provisionally admitted to the program. Students are fully admitted once the criteria have been satisfied.
Once admitted into the Accelerated Bachelor’s to MBA Program, students will be given an updated degree plan and timeline for completing their accelerated program. Students will need to follow their degree plans and work with advisor on any changes.
