4+1 B.S. to MBA

Ramapo College offers students the ability to begin their MBA careers as soon as they finish their undergraduate degree. Students can join the MBA program the semester after their last undergraduate course is complete (including the summer term). In fact, non-business undergraduate students can take up to two 500-level MBA courses while they are completing their undergraduate studies.

The MBA program allows students to complete all program requirements in as little as 12 months. This is especially true for students with a business undergraduate degree as they are granted Advanced Standing and receive a waiver for 12 credits of course work. Students with a non-business undergraduate degree may still complete the program in just 16 months (please note that students granted Advanced Standing are not eligible to take MBA courses as undergraduate students).
