Where do you want to be in five years? With a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree from Western New England University, you’ll be well prepared to make your mark in the business world. This challenging accelerated program is designed for highly motivated students. If you qualify, you can be conditionally admitted to the MBA program when you apply as a high school senior. If you maintain at least a 3.30 GPA in your undergraduate program, the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) requirement will be waived.
All MBA courses are taught online with an option to meet in class for half of the eleven sessions in each course. These live sessions are held in the evening. That means beginning in your senior year, you can take the MBA courses entirely online, or choose to attend six live sessions during the 11-week graduate term. If you do not meet the GPA and SAT requirements as a freshman, you can still become involved in the fast-track program based on your grades and GMAT test scores.
Skilled marketers, savvy financial consultants, owners of their own CPA firms--these are the kinds of professionals who bring the business world to the classroom at the College of Business. On-campus or online, they readily share their extensive knowledge and expertise as gifted classroom teachers. Graduates of leading business schools and universities, they are actively engaged in advancing the field of business through research, consulting, and scholarship, hallmarks of AACSB International accredited programs. This experience helps them to bring a real-world perspective of the business to the MBA program.
The best business schools in the world are accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Western New England University is the only private institution in western Massachusetts accredited by AACSB International and among fewer than 5% of business schools in the world to hold this accreditation.
