By working with the undergraduate and graduate advisors and taking 15 credits per semester, it may be possible to graduate in 5 years with a Bachelor's degree with a business minor and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.  A student must take the courses in the business minor marked with * to complete the Phase I MBA requirements while completing their undergraduate degree to stay on pace to earn both degrees in five years.  Contact the undergraduate business advisor for more information.
