Robert Day School of Economics and Finance

4+1 BA/MBA Program


The Robert A. Day 4+1 BA/MBA Program provides an opportunity for CMC students to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from CMC and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University (CGU).

The program is a unique alternative to the traditional route to an MBA. Rather than interrupting their careers to pursue an MBA degree, Day 4+1 students begin taking MBA courses during the senior year at CMC. Students then graduate from CMC with their undergraduate classmates before completing the MBA in a fifth year of full-time study at CGU.

In addition to the coursework, Day 4+1 students participate in two intensive summer internships, one after the junior year at CMC and the second in the summer between graduating from CMC and the fifth year of the program at CGU. The summer internships are concentrated periods of work experience where students develop professionally while gaining sensitivity to issues involved in the practice of management.

CMC students interested in the program should meet with the Director of Graduate Programs of the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance no later than the beginning of their junior year in order to plan their sequencing of coursework. Students apply for admission to the 4+1 program by the end of January of the junior year. College transcripts and GMAT scores must be submitted along with the application.
