Accelerated MBA

For students of The Sage Colleges, there are policies that allow acceleration of the programs in Sage Graduate School. Undergraduate students in good standing, with a GPA of 3.000, may take graduate courses for undergraduate credit, with advisor approval and permission of the Dean of the School of Management.

Accerelation - 6 credits

Undergraduate students who are seniors and who have a GPA of 3.000 may take two graduate courses for graduate credit, with advisor approval and permission of the Dean of Sage Graduate School. These courses may satisfy undergraduate requirements, or if they are completed beyond the 120 credits required for the baccalaureate degree, may satisfy graduate requirements.

Undergraduate students hoping to enroll in graduate coursework should be aware of the restrictions on the policies that support acceleration. No undergraduate degree can be completed with fewer than 120 credits. The graduate degree must include a minimum of 30 newly completed graduate credits after matriculation in graduate program. Students in undergraduate programs should seek advisement from their faculty advisor and from the graduate program to which they will apply, to ensure that the courses selected apply to the appropriate programs.

Acceleration - 12 credits
