Accelerated and Dual Degree Programs

Earning both an undergraduate and graduate degree in less time may be just the combination you need to accelerate your career prospects.
Traditionally, a bachelor’s degree requires four years to complete and a master’s degree requires an additional year or two. However, academically strong and motivated students may enroll in one of Miami Herbert’s accelerated or dual degree programs, which allow students to earn both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a much shorter time—saving them time and money. Take a moment to consider the options.

Once selected, Dean’s Scholars complete either the BBA or the BSBA in General Business in six full-time semesters and are pre-admitted to their choice of the following graduate business degrees, typically with a generous scholarship award.

*Master of Science in Health Administration is an 18-month master’s program. Dean’s Scholars complete their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 4.5 years.
