Students interested in the Integrated B.B.A./M.P.Ac. in Professional Accountancy will be required to complete a minimum of 150 credit hours. Of this total, 120 credit hours will be at the undergraduate level, and 30 credit hours will be at the graduate level. The undergraduate course requirements are identical to those for the non-integrated B.B.A. in Accounting, and the graduate course requirements are identical to those for the M.P.Ac. Therefore, this five-year integrated B.B.A./M.P.Ac. program has a true 4+1 modular structure.

Candidates for this program must meet the current admission requirements for the M.P.Ac. program and be unconditionally admitted before taking any graduate M.P.Ac. courses. You must achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better in all undergraduate courses and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better in all graduate courses.

A unique feature of the integrated program is that you will begin taking graduate course work in your senior year. Upon successful completion of all 150 credit hours of this five-year program, you will be awarded both the B.B.A. in Accounting and the M.P.Ac. degree at the same time - you will not receive the B.B.A. in Accounting after completing 120 credit hours at the undergraduate level.

Should you decide not to complete the M.P.Ac. portion of the integrated program, then you would simply have to complete any remaining degree requirements for the B.B.A. in Accounting in order to be awarded that degree. Because of the 4+1 structure of the integrated program, all of the undergraduate courses already completed as part of the integrated five-year program would count towards completion of the B.B.A. in Accounting.
