4+1 Master of Business Administration
Dual Graduate Credit

Any undergraduate student who is currently enrolled in a baccalaureate degree business program, and who is within the final twenty-four (24) credit hours needed to graduate, will be permitted to complete two (2) graduate courses for dual credit, totaling no more than six (6) credit hours, based upon the following criteria:
  • A student who has a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher will receive unconditional approval to complete graduate courses for dual credit.

  • A student who has a cumulative GPA between 3.00-3.49 will be considered for approval pending review of a letter of recommendation from an undergraduate instructor. This letter should list each business course(s) taught by the recommending instructor that the student has completed to date, the student's overall academic performance in those courses, and the instructor's view of the student's ability to successfully complete advance coursework at the graduate level.

  • A student with a GPA under 3.00 will not be approved to complete graduate courses for dual credit unless unforeseen or extreme, extenuating circumstances have had a significant, negative impact on the student's overall undergraduate academic performance. In this case, the student must submit a detailed letter of explanation to the Dean of the Jetter School of Business that explains these negative effects in greater detail, and that also discusses how the student now intends to successfully complete coursework at the graduate level.
Graduate courses that an approved student may complete for dual credit include:
  • ECON6083 Managerial Economics
  • MANG6023 Organizational Behavior
  • MANG6093 Global Business
  • MANG6113 Ethics, Leadership, and Faith
  • MARK6003 Marketing Management
  • MANG6123 Legal Issues in Management
Note: Approval to complete Managerial Accounting or Corporate Finance may also be considered in specific cases that include an undergraduate Accounting major or minor who is within the final twenty-four (24) hours needed to graduate and who also meets the minimum GPA criteria listed above.

The following graduate courses will not, under any circumstances, be considered as options for dual credit:
  • MANG6043 Strategic Management
