Accelerated BS-Applied Mathematics MBA (Joint Degree Program)The Accelerated BS-Applied Mathematics MBA program is designed to allow undergraduate Applied Math students to complete the Gateway courses with undergraduate equivalents and begin taking graduate level business courses while completing the bachelor’s degree.
The learning outcomes in this program include:
- Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of standard topics in: calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and advanced calculus (theory and analysis of basic rules of calculus).
- Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of standard topics in: applied numerical methods, mathematical models and statistics.
- Students will demonstrate a working knowledge of standard topics in an application area, such as applied mathematics, computer science, chemistry, physics, engineering, economics, etc.
- Students will demonstrate an ability to communicate mathematical results in written form.
- Students will be able to formulate, analyze and solve mathematical models.
- Students will be able to apply mathematical theories to solving routine and non-routine mathematical models.
Admission RequirementsStudents are asked to formally apply to the accelerated program through the Graduate School during the third year of their bachelor’s degree. Admission Requirements to the MBA portion of the degree program are: An overall GPA of 2.0 for all courses taken, a 3.0 GPA for courses in mathematics, and a 3.5 GPA in CBA courses. In addition the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is required for admission. Scores above 500 are expected with scores of 600 or better preferred for students seeking a graduate assistantship. Information on the test is available at www.mba.com. The GRE, MCAT and LSAT are also approved for admission. Scores of 50% or better on all sections are expected.
- July 15 for Fall enrollment
- November 15 for Spring enrollment
- April 15 for Summer enrollment
It is recommended that international students apply one month prior to these dates to allow time for admission and I-20 visa processing. I-20 forms are processed by the Office of International Programs.
The School of Law should be contacted for its application deadline information.

A list of course requirements is available in the Department of Mathematics. For more information about the program, contact Dr. Curtis Clemons at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 330-972-8353. For more information about the MBA portion of the program, contact Myra Weakland, MBA at email@example.com or call 330-972-7043.
All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
Financial Aid Information
Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students. Information on student loans can be found through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in Simmons Hall.
