Corporate Communications Five-Year BA/MBA


Five Year BA/MBA


Corporate communications majors considering getting an MBA degree are encouraged to pursue Dominican University’s BA/MBA program.

During the senior year, five-year BA/MBA students will take two graduate classes in the Brennan School, and the hours will count toward both the MBA and the 124 hours needed for graduation.

Business Sequence
A minimum of five of seven courses listed below and successful completion (B or better) of business sequence courses will result in waivers for the related MBA courses in the Brennan School of Business.

Undergraduate Course(s) Graduate Course Eligible for Waiver

ECON 101 - Principles of Microeconomics 
and
ECON 102 - Principles of Macroeconomics 

GSB 611 - Economics for Managers

In addition to the waivers listed above, students who have completed CAS 320  or CAS 426  with a grade of B or above will be eligible to have GSB 614 - Organizational Behavior waived from the Brennan School’s MBA program.

Acceptance into the BA/MBA program generally requires a 3.0 GPA, and students are encouraged to apply before the end of their junior year. Accepted students may enroll in two MBA courses during their senior year–one course each semester–and credit will be applied toward their undergraduate degree. (This can be done at no extra charge if taken within the 18-hour limit for full-time undergraduate tuition.) The remaining ten graduate business courses may be taken upon completion of the undergraduate degree.
