Business Scholars

Four Year Combined BS and MBA

Studies have shown that workers with an MBA earn as much as $500,000 more during the course of their careers than those with bachelor’s degrees*. However, the high price of many MBA programs can limit the return on that investment in higher education.

Concordia University Wisconsin offers an affordable, fast track to a Masters Degree in Business Administration. The Business Scholars Program allows highly qualified incoming freshmen to earn both a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and MBA within four years. Tuition costs are the same as our regular four-year undergraduate fees.

The course load requires 18 credits per semester, enrollment in three Winterim sessions and completion of a related internship. Students who complete this challenging program will not only earn a BS and MBA, they will also meet the educational requirements for a number of professional certifications.
