Business of Science Bachelor’s Plus One-Year M.B.A

The combined 5-year Business of Science program is designed to provide students with an exceptional educational experience in science and business.  This flexible plan is designed for students looking for an interdisciplinary experience that provides them with the depth of a BS in Science and the business fundamentals of an MBA.  


Students in this plan will pick an undergraduate major in one of the sciences including:

  • Biology, B.S. (123 undergraduate credits)
  • Biochemistry, B.S. (126 undergraduate credits)
  • Chemistry, B.S. (120 undergraduate credits)
  • Computer Science, B.S. (121 - 127 undergraduate credits, depending on track)
  • Mathematics, B.S. (122 undergraduate credits)
  • Physics, B.S. (120 undergraduate credits)


Of the undergraduate courses that count toward the Bachelor’s degree, students will need to complete all of the following courses while they are undergraduates and obtain a B* or higher in order to complete the prerequisites of program (the total number of credits depends on the science major and math course as listed above):


* If students do not achieve a B or higher in a course, they have the option of taking an optional placement exam to fulfill a waiver for each undergraduate business class except Principles of Management, Legal & Ethical Environment, and Managerial Finance. To find these exams, please reach out to Michael Minutoli, Director of Graduate Programs in the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business via email at babrown@adelphi.edu .


Upon completion of the Bachelor’s degree, students will have completed 33 credits toward the MBA and possibly one graduate course and will then pursue 33 graduate credits in their fifth year, as listed in the Master’s program.
