Accelerated MBA Program with Union Graduate College

St. Lawrence University and Union Graduate College have established an agreement which allows qualified St. Lawrence University students who have earned a Bachelor’s degree to accelerate their progress through the Union MBA program. Students may plan their undergraduate program to include courses that serve as a foundation for graduate study at Union. As a result, students may complete the Union MBA in about one year.

Applicants should demonstrate an overall strong potential for success in graduate business study based on their GMAT scores and their undergraduate academic performance. Other aspects of the agreement include:

  • Only those courses in which a student earns a B- (2.75) or better will qualify towards waiver credit.
  • Regular admission applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a minimum GMAT score of 500.
  • St. Lawrence students with a GPA of 3.5 or above may waive the GMAT for admission. However, GMAT scores are required for students wishing to be considered for merit scholarships.
  • Upon completion of the junior year, students may be granted early admission if they have achieved a GPA of 3.4 or above and a GMAT score of 600 or above.
  • Courses are eligible for waiver for a period of up to 5 years from the time of graduation from St. Lawrence.

Advising of students in this agreement will be undertaken by faculty members of St Lawrence University and Union's School of Management, working on a collaborative basis.
