Meredith Offers Accelerated MBA

The Accelerated MBA is a relatively new 4+1 program that allows Meredith College undergraduate students to earn a graduate degree in just one additional year, saving both time and money. And Meredith’s competitive, nationally-ranked MBA program is the lowest-cost AACSB program in the Triangle.

How it Works
Qualified students complete a core set of business courses during their first three years at Meredith. During their senior year, students in the program take two MBA courses that count toward their undergraduate and graduate requirements. After earning their undergraduate degree, students can complete the Meredith MBA with two semesters and two summer sessions.

The Accelerated MBA is open to any major at Meredith. It combines well with an undergraduate degree in fields including, but not limited to, the arts, English, communication, STEM fields, or design, making it an ideal option for non-business majors. Eight students are enrolled in the program so far, representing a variety of majors.

Next Steps
If your student is interested, she should enroll by sophomore year in order to complete the program in five years. She will receive dual-advising her senior year to help ensure success on the undergraduate level and in the Meredith MBA.
