The Accelerated MBA is a 4+1 program allows Meredith College undergraduate students to earn a graduate degree in just one additional year, saving both time and money. 

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

Quick Facts:

  • Open to any major at Meredith.
  • The Accelerated MBA 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.
  • Students should enroll by sophomore year in order to complete the program in five years.
  • Seniors will have dual-advising to help ensure success on the undergraduate level and in the Meredith MBA
  • Meredith’s competitive, nationally-ranked MBA program is the most affordable AACSB program in the Triangle.
