Manhattan College Announces New Seamless M.B.A Program for Undergraduates

Starting in fall of 2011, Manhattan College’s school of business will introduce a new graduate M.B.A. program for qualified Manhattan students.

Starting in fall of 2011, Manhattan College’s school of business will introduce a new graduate M.B.A. program for qualified Manhattan students. The program will facilitate undergraduate students the opportunity to complete both a bachelor's degree and an M.B.A. in five years.
 
“Manhattan College is dedicated to advancing the education of our students,” said Salwa Ammar, Ph.D., dean of Manhattan College’s business school. “We are excited by the approval of the new M.B.A. program and motivated to continue the College's long tradition of excellence in accounting and business education.”
 
The University of the State of New York approved the 36-credit M.B.A. on Aug. 19, 2010, and also confirmed that the degree meets the state’s educational requirements for the CPA (Certified Public Accountancy) license. The new M.B.A. program is designed to increase students’ awareness of the multifunctional aspects of business and enhance their ability to integrate business knowledge in decision-making.
 
In addition to the 36-credit requirement, undergraduate candidates for the M.B.A. program will be required to take prerequisites and foundation requirements typically fulfilled in the undergraduate business and accounting majors. The business school is in the process of finalizing all courses and admission details for the new program and is encouraging any interested students to contact the school at (718) 862-7141 or e-mail: admit@manhattan.edu. Academic performance, leadership qualities and the ability to complete the program are a few of the requirements undergraduates should meet.
