Integrated Programs

An Integrated Baccalaureate and Master’s degree program provides the opportunity for outstanding undergraduates to earn both degrees in five years. Typically, a baccalaureate degree requires four years to complete and a master’s degree requires an additional two years. However, the integrated degree programs are intended to be accomplished over a period of five years. In addition to earning both degrees a year early, the integrated programs may include additional opportunities to participate in a variety of experiential educational activities such as a master’s project or thesis.

Integrated MBA Programs
Integrated MBA Program

The Integrated MBA programs at WIU give students the opportunity to complete their undergraduate degree AND earn the graduate degree that is a recognized credential among employers: the MBA – all in five years.

An integrated degree program is a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree that fit seamlessly together so that both can be completed in a five year time period, saving a student both time and money. It allows students to start taking graduate courses during the senior year and counting some of those courses towards both their bachelor’s degree and towards a master’s degree.
