Accelerated Degree Programs
The Accelerated Degree programs offered at Pitt Business put students on the fast track to earning a graduate degree in a professional field. Designed for highly motivated, professionally driven individuals, these programs take advantage of the academic partnerships of the University of Pittsburgh.
In addition to saving on the most valuable resource — time — participating students reduce their tuition expenses, gain an advanced degree, and enhance their professional experience. This is another way we take students from the classroom, to the city, to the world.
Offered with the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, the 3+1 BSBA/MAcc program enables first-year's who enter Pitt Business with at least 15 advanced standing college credits to earn their BSBA and a master’s degree in accounting in only four years. Merit scholarships are available to make the cost equal to as if the student was earning only his or her undergraduate degree.
The BSBA/MBA 3+1.5 program option is available to first-year's entering Pitt Business up to and including the Fall 2021 semester. To be eligible for this program option, students must begin their first year with at least 15 advanced standing college credits. Eligible students will plan for this option with their Pitt Business academic advisor. Students entering Pitt Business after Fall 2021 are encouraged to consider the other accelerated options available.
Offered with the Pitt School of Law, the Accelerated Law Admissions Program (ALAP) allows Pitt Business students to earn their BSBA and Juris Doctorate in a total of six years. Customarily, it would take four years to earn the BSBA and three years to complete law school. To participate, students must apply and be accepted into the School of Law during their junior year in the business school.
