Qualified students may take up to 12 credit hours (4 courses) from the MBA curriculum, which will reduce the time necessary to complete the graduate degree from two years to as little as one year following the completion of the undergraduate degree (see table below). Students must be enrolled in at least 12 semester credit hours combined of undergraduate and graduate classes each semester that he or she is taking MBA credits under this option.
