STEM MBA Accelerated Program

Want to get a head start on your STEM MBA?

Undergraduate majors in the College of Business may apply for admission to the STEM Master of Business Administration program. If accepted, up to 12 hours of 600- or 700-level COB classes taken in the junior or senior year may be counted toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.

The accelerated STEM MBA program allows students to complete their degree in as little as one year after completing their undergraduate program.

Before enrolling in a course that will apply to both the undergraduate program and the master’s program, an undergraduate student must:

  • Be accepted into the accelerated program.
  • Receive prior approval from the graduate advisor, department head of the undergraduate program, and the Dean of the Graduate College. This is done by using a mixed credit form.

Acceptance into the program and all approvals must be completed prior to the end of the Change of Schedule Period for the course(s). See the Graduate College for further information.

Accelerated Admission Requirements

Admission to the accelerated STEM MBA program is competitive

  • Completion of 80 or more hours at the time of application
  • An overall GPA of 3.00 or better
  • A competitive score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or applicant must meet the requirements for a GMAT waiver (see admission requirements for STEM MBA program)

In addition to the STEM MBA, students can pursue a graduate certificate to focus and enhance their degree. We offer several graduate certificate options (many of which can be completed within the STEM MBA program, without requiring additional courses).


Prospective applicants are encouraged to schedule an appointment with our Program Coordinator, Dr. Elizabeth Reger, to discuss the program in more detail.
