Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration BS/MBA

students in lab.

The University at Buffalo School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the School of Management offer a five-year program leading to a combined Bachelor’s degree/Master’s degree in Business Administration. 

This program reduces the typical path of a four year bachelor's degree and a two year MBA by one year. This is possible because of a slight reduction in undergraduate courses created by overlapping electives and the substitution of equivalent graduate-level courses. When completed, students’ records will indicate two degrees individually awarded as part of a combined degree program.

Apply to the MBA

Students should apply to the MBA program during their Junior Year.
