What will I learn?

On campus living is currently optional, but quarantine seems to have made this year’s freshman class less ready for off campus living. We want to make sure that they have a support system in place, which they will have in the dorms.

The 2+3 combined BSBA/MBA program in Business Administration provides an opportunity for students of recognized academic ability and educational maturity to complete the requirements for both degrees in 5 years of full-time study. This program is available to UMSL students and students of partner universities with which UMSL has an established 2+3 Memorandum of Understanding. The combined program allows students to complete both the undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business Administration with a total of 138 credit hours instead of the typical 150 credit hours if the degrees were pursued separately. When all the requirements of the BSBA/MBA program have been completed, students will be awarded both the BSBA and MBA degrees.

Awarding of Degree

Both degrees (the BSBA and MBA) will be awarded when all requirements for the entire program have been completed. In other words, the BSBA and MBA degrees will be simultaneously awarded at the completion of study.
