Accelerated Bachelor's-Master's degree Program
The program is aimed at individuals with an undergraduate degree in any field, technical or non-technical, who seek to gain a deeper understanding and development of thoughtful leadership around managing and leading people. Current Marquette University undergraduate students may take up to 9 credit hours of graduate-level courses and may start as early as their junior year.
These graduate credits count for both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Should a student be denied admission to the master in management program, the courses will be counted toward the undergraduate degree only. A minimum grade of B is required for courses taken as an undergraduate student for graduate credit to apply toward graduate program requirements. Upon completion of the first term as a master's candidate, the student must petition the Graduate School of Management to transfer the courses taken as an undergraduate to the master's degree.
To be considered for admission to the five-year program, applicants must formally apply to the Graduate School of Management during their senior year at Marquette University, complete all of the application requirements as listed above and indicate on their application that they are applying for the five-year ADP program.
