Financial Management, Fast Track MBA
Cutting the time it takes to complete a traditional MBA in half, Lubin's Fast Track MBA in Financial Management is a new, innovative, and elite program. In addition to a faster completion time, there is also a significant savings in tuition compared to a regular MBA program.
The 39-credit Fast Track MBA can be completed within one year and is offered on Pace's Pleasantville campus in Westchester County and on the New York City campus in Manhattan. Students proceed through the program as a cohort and housing on the campus is available.
Tuition is discounted from our traditional MBA, reflecting the waiver of all six core requirements that students will have covered in their undergraduate business programs and in the summer campus residency.
Prospective students who have graduated from an AACSB-accredited business school with a 3.30 cumulative GPA or higher and a satisfactory GMAT score are eligible to apply. Students who graduated with a 3.50 or higher cumulative GPA will be considered for admission without the GMAT.
The priority application deadline is June 15 of each year, but we will continue to accept and review applications until the class is filled. Please contact Zachary Karp, Assistant Director of Graduate Admission at (212) 346-1531 or email@example.com if you have questions about the application/admission process.
