BS/MBA Dual Degree Program


BS/MBA Dual Degree Program

Drexel LeBow’s BS/MBA program provides academically qualified undergraduate students with the opportunity to earn both a bachelor’s degree and an MBA within five years of study. Graduating with an MBA and an undergraduate degree provides students with a competitive edge when entering the job market without having the time constraints of typical degree pursuits. This program is offered to all students pursuing a bachelor of science in business administration as well as students from select undergraduate programs across the university.

Application Procedure

The BS/MBA program requires a two-tiered application process which includes both undergraduate and graduate requirements. All applicants are required to complete a BS/MBA Accelerated Degree Application available through the undergraduate BS/MBA advisor for each college.

A plan of study/sequence sheet must be completed for each applicant with the assistance of their undergraduate BS/MBA advisor to ensure that all undergraduate degree requirements are met within the required four years. Both documents must be submitted together for approval and processing.

Undergraduate Application Requirements

At the undergraduate level, a provisional BS/MBA attribute code will be placed on the student record at the time of admission. Once the student has accumulated 90 credits, an Accelerated Degree Application must be completed before reaching 120 credits, at which time a BS/MBA code will be placed on the application.
