Business (3-2 Program)
The College of Science and Engineering and M.J. Neeley School of Business offer a combined program leading to a bachelor's degree in Arts and Sciences and a master's degree in Business Administration (MBA). The Three-Two Program, as it is called, takes five years to complete. (Note: Students intending to pursue the 3-2 program should make their plans known, as early as possible, to the Science and Engineering Dean's Office.)
Students interested in the program spend the first three years in Science and Engineering completing the University Curriculum Requirements and meeting the requirements of their major field. During the third year of study, application is made to the MBA program. To be considered for admission, applicants must have completed, or anticipate completing by the end of the third year, a minimum of 100 hours in nonbusiness courses and finished all major requirements and UCR requirements. Applicants must submit the usual application materials, including scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and must present above-average academic records.
If admitted, a student enters the MBA phase of the Three-Two program in the fourth year of study at TCU. The first year of the MBA meets the minor requirements of the undergraduate degree. After successful completion of the first year of the MBA program, the student may petition the Dean of Science and Engineering to be awarded the undergraduate degree.
Business is available as a minor on the B.A. and B.S. degrees. For requirements, see the School of Business section.
