Students who come with a focused path to pursue a degree in business have an opportunity uniquely designed for them – the MBA 4 plus 1 program of The University of Tampa.


This streamlined and competitive opportunity allows our undergraduate business students to earn both their undergraduate business degree and Master of Business Administration in an accelerated format.

The full-time, AACSB-accredited program includes two required internships, which improve our graduates’ marketability and technical, real-world experience.


Students in the MBA 4 plus 1 program of The University of Tampa take the same courses required for the traditional MBA, however the accelerated structure allows undergraduates to take up to 8 graduate credit hours that will count as undergraduate hours once they have been admitted to the graduate program. To be eligible for the MBA 4+1, students must have a 3.25 GPA or higher and earn a "B" or better in the required business core courses (financial accounting, managerial accounting, financial management, microeconomics, macroeconomics, business statistics, management and marketing management).
