Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Programs


Accelerated bachelor’s/master’s programs are designed to allow undergraduate students to begin work toward master’s requirements simultaneously with the completion of their undergraduate degrees. Units of transferable credit can be earned upon admission to a CGU master’s degree program. Students should apply to the accelerated program at CGU as early as possible, usually in their junior year. This allows coordination in course planning between the student, the CGU school or department, and the undergraduate advisor.

CGU offers accelerated degree programs in partnership with eight undergraduate colleges:

The Claremont Colleges

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is waived for most applicants to an accelerated degree program from The Claremont Colleges. The Drucker MBA program does require GRE or GMAT scores but the work experience requirement for this degree application may be waived.
