Start earning your MBA as a Lesley undergraduate.

Learn how to develop and lead a successful organization. Build a foundation in the essential components of management, including finance and accounting, marketing, organizational behavior, managing resources, and ethics. Discover what outstanding companies do differently to achieve and sustain competitive advantage.

Our accelerated Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is open to all Lesley undergraduate students, whether you are working toward your Bachelor of Science (BS) in Business Management or you are pursuing another major.

You'll get real-world experience through internships in a variety of organizational settings. Then, transition into our fully online MBA during your senior year, opening up a wider range of professional opportunities after graduation. The online MBA includes four, 1.5-credit virtual practicums where you'll work on a project with a local business or organization.

How It Works

The online MBA program is 39 credits. By completing some graduate credits as an undergraduate student, you'll save time and money.

  • Complete 9 graduate credits online (3 courses) during your senior year, included in your undergraduate tuition rate. This saves you about 1.5 semesters of time.
  • Finish the remaining 30 credits of the 39-credit MBA program after you complete your bachelor's degree, at the graduate tuition rate. You'll take 7.5 credits per 8-week online term, for a total of four terms.
  • You'll receive your bachelor's degree once you complete your undergraduate requirements, and you'll receive your MBA when you complete the requirements for the graduate program.
