How It Works
Students take 108 credits at the undergraduate level (20 fewer than in our BBA) and an additional 39 at the graduate level in a concentration outside their undergraduate major department. For example, a student in the combined program majoring in Arts and Entertainment Management for their BBA may not choose a concentration in a management discipline for their MBA.
The following Management BBAs may be combined with any MBA other than Strategy and International Business or Talent Management.
- Arts and Entertainment Management
- Business Management
- Hospitality and Tourism Management
- Human Resources Management
- International Management
The following Marketing BBAs may be combined with any MBA other than Marketing Analytics or Marketing Management.
- Advertising and Integrated Marketing Communications
- Digital Marketing
- Global Marketing Management
- Sports Marketing
NOTE: The MBA in Accounting (CPA Preparation) is a 53–71 credit program that meets CPA licensure requirements. All other MBAs are 39 credits.
Admission to the combined BBA/MBA program originates at the undergraduate level. In order to qualify for direct admission to the BBA/MBA program, candidates are required to have a minimum high school average of 90% and a combined SAT score of 1150 or an equivalent score on the ACT.
Students wishing to transfer into the program from another college or university must have achieved at least a 3.20 GPA at their previous school. All transfer students will be required to fulfill a Pace residency requirement of at least 32 credits at the undergraduate level.
Current Pace students who wish to gain admission to the BBA/MBA program at the undergraduate level are required to have a minimum 3.20 Pace GPA and 3.0 major GPA. Students apply for admission to the MBA program in their junior year.
Additionally, students with a final overall Pace GPA of 3.20 or higher and a 3.2 or higher within their BBA program are exempt from the GMAT requirement for the MBA, and continuing Pace students will not be required to submit letters of recommendation. Graduate application fees are waived. The final decision on admission to the MBA program will be made by the Lubin Graduate Admissions Committee.
