One-Year Accelerated MBA

Our accelerated MBA degree option can help propel your career forward or switch gears in half the time.

If you have a solid business foundation with an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, a strong academic record including a proven emphasis in quantitative skills (think econ and accounting), and have completed the GMAT/GRE, you may be eligible for our accelerated program. It's intense, but who wouldn't want to complete an MBA in nine to fifteen months?

Final determination of eligibility for the accelerated one-year MBA will be made by the admissions review committee only after official transcripts and an official GMAT/GRE score report have been received by the Lundquist College graduate programs office.
