Houghton 4+1 MBA Programs

Earn an MBA in only one year with a Houghton Business Degree

After majoring in business at Houghton, you have the option of getting your MBA in only one year (normally at least a two-year process). This can save you not only thousands of dollars in tuition and other expenses, but will enable you to start your career one year sooner than normal if grad school is in your plans.

Through special arrangements with Alfred University (Alfred, NY), Clarkson University (Potsdam, NY), Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, NY), and Niagara University (Lewiston, NY), these universities have agreed to waive up to as much as the first year of their curriculum requirements in light of the business courses taken in the Houghton undergraduate program.

Students wishing to have this option do need to carefully plan the indicated courses into their Houghton schedule and, of course, meet the normal admission requirements of the respective grad school. Click on the highlighted links below for information on the unique course requirements of each school's program:

Students who wish to be licensed as a CPA will need 150 hours of education.  We have an arrangement with RIT to complete this requirement in one additional year of coursework and complete a MBA along the way. 

Any of the Houghton faculty can provide guidance in planning your Houghton program to align with this unique opportunity.
