Return to Marketing and International Business Programs Return to: Marketing and International Business Programs

The Frank G. Zarb School of Business  offers combined B.B.A./M.S. programs.

Qualified undergraduate students can elect to enroll in a dual degree program, combining their B.B.A. with a Master of Science in any major concentration. The dual degree program can be completed in five years.

The B.B.A./M.S. program requires the successful completion of at least 149 semester hours, including at least 119 semester hours at the undergraduate level and 30 semester hours at the graduate level, with the exception of B.B.A. core courses and GBUS 180. Students who are admitted to the M.S. portion of the dual degree program can substitute up to nine semester hours of undergraduate course work for their bachelor’s degree with an equal number of semester hours of graduate-level graduate course work, with the permission of the student’s B.B.A. major department chairperson.

Direct admission to the dual degree program (B.B.A./M.S.)


Students admitted directly to the dual degree program as incoming freshmen will be admitted automatically to the M.S. program at the end of their junior year provided that they fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.2 at the time of application to the M.S. program or upon completion of 92 semester hours of course work toward their B.B.A. degree, whichever is later.
  2. Successfully complete the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) before the end of their junior year, or before completion of 92 semester hours of course work, with the following exceptions for M.S. programs. Business students with overall GPAs of 3.2 or higher applying for admission to the dual degree B.B.A/M.S. in accounting  or B.B.A./M.S. in taxation  are not required to take the GMAT. Business students with GPAs of 3.2 or higher seeking admission to dual degree B.B.A./M.S. programs other than the B.B.A./M.S. in accounting or B.B.A./M.S. in taxation may request a waiver of the GMAT requirement by the chair of the department overseeing the M.S. major.
  3. Complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of undergraduate course work in residence at Hofstra.
