What will I learn?

All graduating management information systems students from Saint Francis University who desire the fifth year option to complete the MBA will still need to meet all requirements for the graduate business program, except for the GMAT exam which will be waived if the student presents a final overall collegiate QPA of at least 3.3/4.0. Matriculated MBA students who enter the graduate phase of this special “4+1” option will need to complete at least 30 graduate credits in order to complete the MBA degree. Students in this program will be able to complete a B.S. in Management Information Systems and MBA within five years. Of course students will be allowed to spread their studies over a longer period of time if they desire to do so. Students need to declare this option with their academic advisor and are strongly encouraged to meet with the Director of the MBA program or Coordinator of Graduate Business Program to discuss this path prior to the beginning of their senior year.
