This program provides students wih a strong foundation in management and accounting and affords students the opportunities to develop those abilities associated with superior managerial performance. Undergraduate students who are accepted into this program are permitted to enroll in two graduate management courses (MGT 500 and one other 500-level course) and two graduate accounting courses (ACC 565 and ACC 555) while completing their undergraduate studies. This arrangement allows students to accelerate their studies and to reduce the total number of credits for these two degrees from 164 to 152 credits. It is therefore conceivable that students can complete this degree in five years.
