Combined Program Pathways David B. O'Maley College of Business


The objective of the combined programs is to provide the opportunity for students to build a well-rounded undergraduate education and then further prepare themselves as professional business managers in the aviation/aerospace industry.

A student who has earned a minimum of 75 credit hours with at least a 3.00 CGPA may apply for admission through the Graduate Admissions office. The application must accompany two letters of recommendation from faculty who have taught the student. These letters should indicate (1) the applicant’s potential to successfully complete graduate-level work and (2) evidence that the applicant has attained the foundational competencies for graduate degree studies.

The graduate Business Administration transition courses* listed are to be taken in place of six to nine of the undergraduate credits noted in one's undergraduate degree program. Not following the suggested course of study will require the student to take additional courses to prepare for the graduate program.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the graduate business program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the undergraduate degree, any graduate transition courses used to meet graduation requirements will be noted as undergraduate courses for the purpose of graduation.

* Transition courses are specific to each combined program. Please refer to the programs listed below.
