B.S. in Business Administration: Integrated Business to MBA

Print/Download Page

Program Description

The Integrated Business concentration of the B.S. in Business Administration degree prepares students for the 21st century global business environment. 

Qualified undergraduate students in the Business Administration program may be eligible to participate in the accelerated B.S.-to-MBA program, which enables them to take graduate courses that apply to both their bachelor's degree and (thereafter) a MBA degree with a concentration in Accounting, Applied Economics, Healthcare Management or Management. (The MBA program at Cal U hones decision-making and leadership abilities while also building specialized knowledge in one of these concentration areas.)  

Through the accelerated program, students can complete both degrees at Cal U with a total of 144 credits.
