Early admission/bridge program – BBA-MBA

Undergraduate students accepted in the BBA-MBA option will be admitted to the MBA program and allowed to complete up to three graduate level classes (nine credit hours) during their final academic year of undergraduate studies. Students admitted into the pipeline program must apply for admission to the College of Graduate Studies for the semester that they intend to matriculate. They will then continue in the MBA program upon completion of the undergraduate degree requirements. The graduate coursework (up to nine hours) may be applied to completion of both undergraduate and MBA degree requirements. The following provisions apply for classes taken for graduate credit: 1) graduate classes taken at The University of Toledo only after the student is accepted in the MBA joint program, 2) only BUAD 6100, BUAD 6300, BUAD 6400, BUAD 6500, BUAD 6800 may be included in the approved nine semester hours of graduate credit taken as an undergraduate. 3) Up to 9 credit hours of graduate business courses can be used toward the 3000/4000-level business electives or extra hours toward their BBA.  However, they may not count any of those 9 credit hours toward any specific undergraduate major or minor requirements, nor may they count toward any required undergraduate business core requirements (i.e., no BUAD-designated courses). Students must have at the time of application 1) a minimum of 3.0 cumulative undergraduate grade point average that will include undergraduate credits earned at other institutions and transferred to UT, 2) undergraduate advisor's approval, and 3) graduate advisor’s approval. Students interested in the joint BBA / MBA program must submit 1) a letter of interest, 2) a completed graduate admission application, 3) at least 2 letter(s) of recommendation from faculty members. After successful completion of the application process, students will apply to the graduate program.
