For those who haven’t completed their bachelor’s degree, there's a great way to save both time and money while getting your MBA: Baker College’s 4+1 fast track program.
You'll complete a four-year bachelor's degree and then smoothly transition to your MBA, finishing your master's degree in as little as one year! Not only does this save you money on tuition and fees, it also saves time, helping you achieve your goals sooner.
What Is an Accelerated MBA Program?
An accelerated MBA program provides an exciting pathway for you to gain both a Bachelor of Business Administration and your MBA in just five years. After finishing your bachelor's degree in business administration, you'll go right on to finish your master's degree in a single year.
With an accelerated MBA program, incoming freshmen can choose from a number of Bachelor of Business Administration tracks to customize their training. Focus your interests in accounting, finance, human resource management, logistics, management, or marketing before completing your MBA.
Our 4+1 fast track programs are highly inclusive, with flexible online scheduling options that work for incoming freshmen, transfer students and adults headed back to school.
Why Choose a 4+1 MBA Program?
Few resources are more valuable than your time and a 4+1 program gets you on the right track faster. By finishing a year early, you'll start earning money sooner, making it easier to support your lifestyle, buy a home, or invest your money.
With an MBA, you'll also qualify for higher-paying jobs earlier in life, which can improve your career advancement and total earnings.
Balance Work and School
If you're already working while completing your degree, you understand the importance of balancing work and school. And the truth is, most students work at some point during their schooling. With a 4+1 program, you'll spend fewer years in school and benefit from the flexibility of online courses, leaving you the flexibility you need for work and creating a better balance in your life.
Transfer Into the Program
If you've already started working towards your bachelor's degree, Baker College works with students to transfer your credits to a 4+1 program. We work with you to get the maximum number of transfer credits, so you won't waste the hard work you’ve already done.
