Cedarville's Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Options Make Education More Affordable

October 25, 2018

Four students in cap and gown at commencementCedarville is always looking for ways to help make our distinctly Christian education affordable and accessible for more families. Last week we mentioned three-year completion options that can help your student complete college sooner, saving time and money. Last year, we took this idea to another level.

We now offer Bachelor's-to-Master's accelerated completion plans. Starting this fall, students can complete a bachelor's degree in select majors plus a Master of Business Administration in just five years, and even four years if they choose the three-year B.A. completion plan. Since all M.B.A. courses are online, your student can actually begin his or her career while finishing the graduate program. This option saves time and money by completing M.B.A. prerequisites and two M.B.A. core or elective courses as part of the undergraduate curriculum, then completing the M.B.A. in the next 12 months. By combining a B.A. or B.S. with an M.B.A., your student will be more marketable immediately.

We currently have 20 bachelor's-to-master's completion plan options, with more on the way. We'll also be creating accelerated plans for some of our other master's degree programs soon! Don't see your students major listed? Talk to us! It's possible that we can create a specific plan just for them.

It's one more way Cedarville is doing all we can to make a distinctly Christian education affordable and accessible for families. Stay tuned ... we'll be adding additional accelerated bachelor's to master's programs in the near future!

And, your student would enter the workforce and begin earning a salary one year sooner, making the value of a three-year degree $50,000 or more!
