Accelerated Degree in Global Studies and Business Administration (BA + MBA) Earn Your Advanced Degree Sooner The accelerated degree program in Global Studies and Business Administration enables academically qualified students to earn both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree — graduating sooner than they would in traditional programs. The program allows students to complete an accelerated bachelor’s degree (BA) in Global Studies and an MBA. Students apply in their third year to Drexel’s LeBow College of Business. Those accepted begin working on their MBA as they complete their BA, getting their MBA a year earlier than if they had done the two degrees separately. They also have a chance to complete an undergraduate co-op and gain valuable work experience as they go. Graduates of the accelerated degree enter the workforce one year sooner with the benefits of an advanced degree in Communication, using the year saved to gain full-time experience and earn a salary in the field.
