Three-Year Business Administration Degree Program

3 year BA programMCLA now offers an exciting opportunity for business students – the Three-Year Business Administration Degree Program. The program lets highly-motivated and hard-working students complete a general business administration degree in three years, instead of the traditional four.

Excellent candidates for the Three-Year Business Administration Degree Program will enter with Advanced Placement (AP) or College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) credit – but all motivated, hard-working students may apply. High school students should contact MCLA admissions advisors to help plan which high school courses will complement a Business Administration major.

Because MCLA is consistently ranked as a top public liberal arts institution, you can be confident that your education in the Three-Year Business Administration Degree Program will be of the highest quality.

Program Highlights:

  • Innovation: MCLA is one of the first four-year public institutions in Massachusetts to offer this opportunity.
  • Flexibility: You can transition into our traditional “MCLA in 4” business program without missing out on credits.
  • Mentoring: Once accepted, you’re matched with a business faculty advisor, to guide your course selection and internship placement.
  • Experience: The program’s unique internship offering provides placement for students who meet the internship criteria.

Enrollment in the Three-Year Business Administration Degree Program is full-time, across six regular semesters plus two summer semesters. The program includes on-campus, hybrid and online courses, as well as summer internships. Students meet with their faculty advisor to develop a degree completion plan for their individual needs. Completing the Three-Year Business Administration Degree Program makes college more affordable, and lets you join the workforce a year ahead, or start a graduate degree more quickly – all with the same high quality educational experience as a four-year degree student.
