This combination of degrees will position you to enter a lucrative career in the business world, holding the highly sought-after MBA credential.
You will seamlessly complete both degrees in a shortened time frame, saving you time and money. Direct entry in the MBA courses means you will not need to apply for the graduate program. As long as you maintain good academic standing, you will automatically be eligible to enroll in the MBA program.

Program academic policies:
To be in good standing, students must do the following:
For all coursework at the 100 to 400 levels
1. Maintain term (semester/summer) GPA of 2.5 and cumulative GPA of 3.0.
2. Maintain a minimum grade of C in all 100- to 400-level courses required in the major and for all other courses required for the major.
3. Undergraduate program students experiencing academic difficulties may be required to decelerate their progress until an acceptable level of general academic performance is achieved. Permission to decelerate in the program must be obtained from the chair of the department of business.
4. Students at the undergraduate level can be placed on program probation a maximum of two consecutive terms or a total of three nonconsecutive terms. Students who exceed these limits are dismissed.
For all Graduate level coursework in the program (All MBAXXX courses)
In addition to the general academic regulations, all full-time and part-time students must meet the academic regulations listed below:
- A student must maintain a minimum semester/summer and cumulative average of at least 3.0.
- Any student who fails to achieve a minimum semester/summer or cumulative 3.0 G.P.A. and/or who has earned more than two grades below “C” at the completion of the term (summer/semester), will be placed on academic probation. Students can be on probation for one term during their graduate portion of the program. Probation is for one full-time term. Dismissal occurs if, within the one term probation period, program requirements are not met (GPA 3.0, and no more than two courses below a grade of “B”)
- Students who fail to achieve a minimum grade of B for a course (500- or 600-level courses) will not be permitted to enroll for the subsequent term sequence courses until the course with a grade lower than B has been successfully repeated. If space is available, the course must be repeated the next time it is offered.
- Any student who fails to obtain a B in a repeated course will be academically dismissed from the program.
Incoming freshman may apply for this program as with the following admissions standards:
1. Combined SAT scores of at least 1,080 (math and verbal) or 21 ACT (Test scores are optional)
2. A high school average of at least 85 percent
3. High school rank in the upper half of class
Students must also demonstrate successful completion of two years of mathematics. Although D’Youville does not mandate that letters of recommendation or a letter of intent to study a specific discipline be included with the application, students applying to the BS/MBA dual degree program in Management are strongly advised to include these documents with their application.
Transfer students (internal and external) may apply for this program with the following admissions standards:
- A minimum GPA of 2.5.
- Transfer students are also strongly advised to include letters of recommendation and a letter of intent with their application.
- Students with a GPA of lower than 2.5 may be considered for conditional acceptance on an individual basis. Conditionally accepted students can matriculate after completing four undergraduate or graduate courses, as appropriate, with a grade of B or better.
Students in the 4-year Management B.S. program who are considering applying for transfer to this program are encouraged to talk to their academic advisor before the start of their 6th semester of full-time study.
