150-hour Accounting Program (M.B.A.)

The 150-hour Accounting Program is an ideal opportunity for UD accounting undergraduates. Because 150 hours are already typically required to take the CPA examination, we've designed a program that will allow you to earn your undergraduate degree in accounting concurrently with an MBA in as few as 150 hours.

It's a powerful combination — you get an undergraduate major in accounting, your MBA, an opportunity for additional graduate accounting coursework, and the option to participate in a study abroad program for a true global experience.

Accounting majors interested in this program should contact Dr. Donna Street, chair of the Accounting Department, in their sophomore or early junior year. An additional meeting should then be scheduled with the 150 Hour Advisor in the MBA Office. The GMAT or GRE and graduate application are required two semesters before beginning MBA classes. Students in this program can substitute MBA 798 for MGT 490 and an MBA accounting elective for an undergraduate accounting elective.

UD will extend your scholarship support in your fifth year while you complete your MBA. In addition, we have a limited number of scholarships and graduate assistantships available. Financial assistance is also available from a number of non-UD sources, especially for minority candidates.
