The BS,BA/MBA in Business Administration: Public Management Concentration program is unique. It allows qualified students to earn both a Bachelor’s degree, and an MBA In Business Administration with a Public Management Concentration concurrently.
A student can use up to 12 credits of elective from his/her respective major for MBA courses once he/she has been admitted into the program.
A student who earns two “C” or lower grades in graduate-level courses is placed on probation. If a third “C” or lower grade is earned, the student is automatically dismissed from the program.
Students who complete part of the integrated degree plan but decide to opt out of the MBA program and continue towards earning only the undergraduate degree can use the MBA courses toward the undergraduate degree but cannot later use them to pursue the MBA degree.
