Get Two Degrees.
Maximize your earning potential with a +1 MBA
Undergraduate students can earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in one year after completing an undergraduate degree. The accelerated +1 MBA program allows you to waive core MBA courses by taking specified undergraduate business courses: a "B" grade or better to receive the MBA course waivers.
An +1 MBA degree allows you to graduate sooner, saving on tuition while preparing you with the qualifications needed to pursue higher-level and higher-paying positions.
First-year students – Outstanding undergraduate applicants may be offered conditional early acceptance to the +1 MBA program from designated undergraduate degree programs, as incoming first-year students.
Current undergraduate students – RIT students currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program may apply for conditional admission to a combined accelerated bachelor’s/master’s pathway after their second or third year of study, depending upon their bachelor’s degree program.
Students from RIT who meet the full admissions requirements and begin a graduate program by Spring 2024 will receive a 45% scholarship award under RIT’s Master Plan. Students enrolled in the early accept pathway will also be eligible for the 45% scholarship award through Spring 2024.
