Earn an undergraduate business degree and an MBA in just five years

The 3/2 MBA is a transformative experience designed for high-achieving Kelley accounting and finance students. The intensive two-year curriculum prepares students for a variety of careers in assurance and risk management, corporate accounting, management consulting, banking and financial services, governmental and nonprofit organizations, and taxation practices.

It’s a smart investment, too. By earning your BS and MBA degrees in five years, you’ll spend one less year in school than you would in a traditional MBA program. And you won’t have to interrupt your career in three to five years to return to school to earn your MBA—you'll already have one.

Graduates of the 3/2 MBA program have an impressive skill set that leads them to success. Our students understand:

  • The basic principles of accounting
  • Internal structures and operations of businesses
  • The relationship between business and external environments (government, legal, competitive)
  • How to integrate business tools and techniques to analyze and recommend solutions
  • Legal and ethical principles as they affect business and accounting decisions
  • Honed professional skills, including oral and written communication, leadership skills, emotional intelligence, teamwork, and self-assessment

Real-world experience a key component of program’s success

Put your new skills to work before graduation. You’ll work with at least three companies before earning your degree, obtaining firsthand experience that will give you an edge during recruiting. Our immersive, seven-week field studies have included work with companies in China, London, Poland, Romania, and Vietnam.

James Georgiou and I created a robust and variable Excel simulation for a private hospital in Romania. This simulation will help our client make future decisions regarding capital expenditures and service mix. During the course of the field study, we had to use technical and professional skills learned from our undergraduate and MBA experiences.
