Lindsey Porter teaching accounting at LVC

Accounting/MBA 3+1

Earn two degrees in four years with LVC’s accelerated dual-degree B.S./MBA in Accounting. You’ll study topics like management, finance, and business law, becoming a skilled communicator and business leader.

Earn a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, then your Master of Business Administration. By the time you’ve completed your MBA in our 3+1 dual-degree program, you’ll have earned enough credits (150) to qualify for licensure as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or a Certified Management Accountant—which means you can take your career to the next level in the same time it normally takes to earn a bachelor’s degree.

You’ll also gain work experience through paid internships, allowing you to step right into the workplace. Need-based departmental scholarships are available.

In Their Words

What appealed to me the most about this program was having the ability to earn two degrees in four years. I also liked the fact that I would save some money by finishing a year early.
