+1 MBA for RIT Students

Get Two Degrees.
Maximize your earning potential with a +1 MBA

Undergraduate students can get a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in one year after completing an undergraduate degree. This accelerated programs allows select core MBA courses to be waived with a combination of specific undergraduate "B" grade or better completed coursework.

There are two ways to enroll in the +1 MBA:

  • First-year students – Outstanding applicants for first-year admission may be offered conditional early acceptance to a master’s degree program as an incoming first-year student.
  • Current undergraduate students – RIT students currently enrolled in a qualifying undergraduate degree program may apply for conditional admission to a combined accelerated bachelor’s/master’s pathway after their first or third year of study, depending upon their bachelor’s degree program.
