MBA Accelerated Degree Program

Earn an undergraduate Marquette degree and an MBA in as little as five years.  Previously, the STEM-MBA, the MBA Accelerated Degree program (ADP) is now available to students in all Marquette undergraduate programs.  Combine your Marquette undergraduate degree with the practical business knowledge of the MBA to build unique skill set that can set you apart in your career.

In the MBA ADP, students take business foundation courses as part of their undergraduate curriculum and then begin graduate-level coursework during their junior or senior year.  In the event students decide not to complete their MBA, the program is structured so they may still earn a minor in business administration.

In order to be considered for the MBA ADP, students should communicate their interest in the program with their undergraduate academic advisor as soon as possible and ideally within freshman or sophomore year.  Students will work with their undergraduate advisor as well as a Graduate School of Management (GSM) advisor to plan for undergraduate business enrollments that will align with MBA course waivers. Students may formally apply to the Graduate School of Management during their junior or senior year.
