The Department of Computer Science and Engineering in conjunction with the School of Management offers a five-year program leading to both a BS in Computer Science degree and an MBA degree. This program reduces by one year the usual pattern of a four-year undergraduate degree and a two-year MBA program. The CS BS/MBA program at UB provides a solid foundation in both computer science and business administration. From the computer science side, students will learn about software development, computer science theory, and computer systems? Students will have the flexibility to specialize in areas such as machine learning, robotics, databases, data mining, distributed systems, networking, data intensive computing, and computer architecture. From the business administration side, students will learn about accounting and financial analysis, marketing, business strategies, business economics, etc.
After admission into the Computer Science and Engineering Department and enrollment in appropriate prerequisite courses, the student will apply directly to the School of Management during their junior year to be admitted to the MBA Program.
