It is recommended that students use the opportunity to take their elective courses in the European Study Program and in the Internship Program.
Five-Year BSBA Accounting Degree/MBA Path
This program is designed for those students who are planning to complete their undergraduate degree in accounting and immediately pursue a Master’s degree on their way to meet the 150 semester-hours requirement to take the CPA examination. The Five-Year BSBA/MBA Path facilitates this pursuit by allowing accounting majors in their senior year to enroll in three (3) hours (1 class) of required upper-level accounting classes and jointly it as a graduate elective. Students using the Five-Year Path may receive up to three (3) hours of graduate school credit by choosing from the following classes during their senior year: ACC 5401 Advanced Accounting I, ACC 5405 Auditing, ACC 5407 Governmental Accounting, or ACC 5403 Federal Income Tax.
The requirements for the MBA degree, as stated in the graduate catalog, will be followed except that the three (3) hours of graduate electives needed may be satisfied by the upper-level accounting courses listed above. Students following this path will only have 27 hours of required graduate courses left to obtain their graduate degree and may complete these requirements in one calendar year.
Students pursuing the Five-Year Path must have at least a 3.0 GPA to be allowed to enroll in the graduate classes their senior year.
