B.S. in Aviation Business Administration to Master of Business Administration

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Business Administration (BSABA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees. The objective of this combined degree track is to provide the opportunity for students to build a well-rounded undergraduate business education and then further prepare themselves as professional managers in the aviation/aerospace industry.

Upon completing the BSABA requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Business Administration will be conferred, and students will be enrolled in the MBA degree. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of “B” or better must be earned. These credits will count toward the B.S. and MBA degree requirements, provided the student maintains enrollment in the combined program and receives a "B" or better in the courses.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the MBA program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the B.S. in Aviation Business Administration, any MBA transition courses used to meet graduation requirements will be noted as undergraduate courses for the purpose of graduation.

Approved Courses for the Combined Option

Students enrolled in the combined option must consult their academic advisor and the MBA program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection. Students will take BA 511, BA 514, and/or BA 520 to replace an equal number of Open Elective courses in the BSABA degree.
