Graduate Students working on project

Psychology / Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts / Master of Business Administration



The combined Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) in Psychology and Business Administration offers highly-motivated students the opportunity to complete both undergraduate and graduate degrees in five years of full-time study.

You may enroll in four or more approved graduate courses while still working toward your undergraduate degree. These graduate courses count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees, saving you time and money as you pursue your educational goals.

By completing undergraduate requirements during your first four years of study, you are assured of the B.A. if for any reason you decide not to complete the M.B.A. Graduate courses that are applied to the B.A. may not be applied to a graduate degree should you decide not to complete the combined degree program.
