The Barney School's 3+1 Program

New and Made for You

What is the 3+1 program?

We did it because you asked for it! It’s now possible to be admitted to the undergraduate program, and at the same time the MBA program, when you select the Barney School as your college of choice. 

This program positions you to start your career a year early. Employers understand that doing the accelerated format is for dedicated high potential students who are therefore sought after as employees for leading companies.

Is this program for you? We are looking for bright, career-oriented, and high-achieving students who can complete the coursework for a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in three years, by taking an accelerated schedule that includes summer and winter term courses, and then move immediately into the Full-time MBA program.

Why choose the 3+1 program? 

  • Complete BSBA and MBA in 4 years.
  • Cohort structure, in which students progress through the 3+1 program together.
  • Selective admission based on GPA, test scores (not test optional), and on-campus interviews.
  • Complete at least one internship in your major.
  • Six majors, 11 minors, and seven MBA concentrations for you to choose from.

Bonus benefits of the 3+1:

  • No large lecture classes.
  • Classes are taught by full time and part-time working professionals, never graduate students.
  • On-campus housing available throughout the program.
