Hi Zoya! I actually did a 5 year Masters and Bachelors degree program and I believe it was definitely worth the time and the effort. If you believe that attaining a Masters degree is something that you definitely want to do, then look for colleges with this program. Coming out of school with a Masters degree will not only expand your knowledge but it will make you more marketable in the workplace. There are many schools that are now offer this accelerated program and they can easily be found with a simple search. I hope you find the school that is right for you!

Yes! There are several Universities that have a combined BS/MS degrees and I highly recommend it. A Masters degree is becoming in my opinion increasingly valuable when it comes to working your way up the career ladder. It can give you a more competitive edge, gives career advancement opportunities and the biggest advantage is cost savings. I would recommend balancing your education, volunteer opportunities, internships, and work experiences.

Yes, many universities offer combo programs, 5-years to obtain your Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree. I think it’s the ideal option for those seeking to complete both degrees at an accelerated pace, with no break in between, AND if there’s a significant value in getting your Masters in your field.

Good luck!

Yes! This is a possibility at some schools, where you apply to qualify for a 5th year master's in business around your junior year and then take advanced courses during your senior year and 5th year. This could be a great option if you are going into a career path where having the MBA credential gives you an advantage from Day 1 on the job. That said, there are many advantages to waiting to get your MBA until you have some more, post-undergraduate professional experience. Many MBA programs require applicants to have several years of professional experience, and the ways in which they demonstrated their leadership abilities throughout their career are the most important part of the MBA application process. As someone who is finishing up my MBA this week, I can say that the most valuable part of the process has been learning from my peers/classmates and their vast array of professional experiences.

Most schools will offer a BS/MS as well. My school offered this in Computer Science.


Basically, your electives focus on the Master's Degree, instead of a broader Bachelor's education.


And if you're really daring, some schools offer joint MBA/JD degrees and the like.

David recommends the following next steps:

  • Do some research on the school your interested in, all of this information is publicly available on their websites

Yes! Great idea! Look into Pace U in White Plains NY as they offer a 5 year combined BS/MBA at their business school. Several other schools do the same. Some will say to work a year or two before you get your MBA, but if you do work study and or get a few good internships that is fine. Good luck!
