The School of Management admits incoming freshmen directly to the major. For direct admission, prospective freshmen are required to select the combined BS/MS Finance program on the UB application.
At the undergraduate level, students must meet the minimum standards for the major. To continue seamlessly to the MS program, students must meet the following conditions:
- the student is on track for four-year graduation,
- at admission to UB (as an undergraduate), met the School of Management graduate admissions standards on tests of English language proficiency, and
- have an overall, UB GPA, and a School of Management GPA of >=3.250 at the end of junior year.
If the standards are met, then the student will be waived of the necessity to submit a GMAT or a GRE score, and will be automatically continue seamlessly to the Master’s program in the fifth year. The Graduate Programs Office will continue to guide the student through the admissions process as required by The Graduate School at UB (minus the application fee) and provide advisement through completion of the MS degree.
