Accelerated MBA Pathway Program

Cut the time and cost to get your MBA in New York.

This Touro pathway – from undergrad to graduate school – is your fast track to an MBA. The pathway allows you to begin taking graduate courses at Touro’s Graduate School of Business while completing your undergraduate degree at NYSCAS. You’ll end four years of undergraduate classes and three semesters of graduate school with a bachelor’s degree, an MBA, and a world of career choices.

How does it work?

You don’t need to be a business major, but you’ll need to take certain courses so you’re set to start your MBA.

  • As a NYSCAS undergrad, you will need to successfully complete three of the following courses (one from each pair listed):
    • GBAN 101 Accounting OR GBFN 101 Finance
    • GBEN 101 Macroeconomics OR GBEN 102 Microeconomics
    • GSMN 142 Calculus OR GSMN 261 Statistics
  • When you have completed 60 Undergraduate credits (including the above), you can apply to the MBA Pathway
  • Once you get in, you can take up to 12 graduate-level credits during your junior and senior year:
    • MBAN 603 Marketing: Branding and Differentiating
    • MBAN 604 Managing an International Perspective of Work
    • MBAN 605 Ethics in the Global Marketplace
    • MBAN 609 Human Capital Management in Multi-Cultural Organizations
  • In your last year of undergrad, you’ll be eligible to apply to the MBA program at GSB in the following concentrations:
    • Entrepreneurship
    • General Management
    • Healthcare Management
    • Human Resource Management
    • International Business Finance
    • Marketing

Your graduate coursework counts towards your undergraduate credits and MBA credits, which means you save time and money towards earning your MBA.
