  • Five-Year Baccalaureate/Master's Program in Business

    Monmouth University's Five-Year Baccalaureate/Master's Program in Business is designed for students who want to increase their knowledge and skills before entering the workforce. In a competitive business environment, having a master's degree can lead to higher-level positions, more responsibility, and greater earning potential.

    The Five-Year Program also allows students to complete their bachelor's and master's degrees in five years. Students begin graduate work in their senior year.


    Students in the Five-Year Program start their undergraduate work in pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Several concentrations are available in the BS, including accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, and real estate.
