B.S. in Homeland Security and Intelligence to Master of Business Administration

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Homeland Security and Intelligence (BSHSI) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees.

Upon completing the BSHSI requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Homeland Security and Intelligence 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 Homeland Security and Intelligence, 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 up to six hours of specified electives and three hours as determined by the undergraduate program coordinator in the BSHSI degree.
