The MBA Graduate School of Union College has established a 4+1 agreement with SUNY Potsdam to allow SUNY Potsdam students to   complete their MBA degree in one additional year after graduation from their undergraduate programs.  
The MBA program prepares students for analytical, managerial, and executive-level positions in a variety of enterprises. The design and   delivery of the curriculum emphasizes broad exposure to core business disciplines; the building of analytical, computer, communication and   human management skills; and the development of an ethical systemsoriented,   cross-functional perspective for decision making.
 
Graduate management study at Union College is a very specialized experience. Union’s first-rate faculty delivers a flexible, global curriculum   within a “small college” environment with the opportunities of a strong   global MBA. It is Union’s size and careful attention to the individual   needs of each student that make graduate study at Union such a rewarding   experience. Small classes meet in the evening, enabling Union to   bring full and part-time students, from all educational backgrounds,   together in exciting and diversified ways. Faculty is routinely accessible   outside of class for individual student questions and conversation.
 
Upon completion of the junior year at SUNY Potsdam, students may   be granted “early admissions” if they have achieved a GPA of 3.4 and   a GMAT of 600 or above. “Regular admissions” applicants must have a GPA of 3.0 and a GMAT score of 500 or above.   Students must complete the SUNY Potsdam courses listed below with a   grade of B- or above to waive the 8 MBA equivalents at Union College in order to graduate from the MBA program in one additional year.
