The Fast-Track MBA Program
The School of Management's Fast-Track MBA programs are designed to offer students the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage in the job market, while saving time. These programs do not require extensive work experience prior to enrollment and enable students to receive their MBA with only one additional year of study.
Through Binghamton University's Fast-Track programs, students are able to directly progress into their MBA degree while still academically oriented. Many students find it advantageous to focus on their MBA studies full-time early on, rather than taking evening MBA courses part-time at later stages of their careers. The Fast-Track MBA program provides students with the chance to begin their professional careers at a higher level and to utilize the tools gained in the program early in their career tracks. Their newly acquired skills enable them to excel more rapidly in the working environment than many of their counterparts.
The School of Management offers three distinct Fast-Track Options. The Harpur Fast-Track MBA Program and Watson Fast-Track MBA Program are offered in conjunction with their respective schools at Binghamton University. In general, these programs are set up so that SOM graduate coursework is taken during the final semesters of the undergraduate program and fulfills the "free" elective requirements for the undergraduate degree.
Our Management Fast-Track MBA Program requires that students graduate with an undergraduate degree in business from an AACSB-accredited school or its equivalent within five years. If you meet the requirements, this attractive option not only saves time and money, but also moves you onto your career track quickly with the skills needed for success.
