Accelerated Bachelors Program

Accelerate Your Future

The Accelerated Bachelors in Business Administration (ABBA) provides you with an opportunity to complete your degree within 17 months. You can read about the admission requirements by clicking on the link to the left. The ABBA program was designed as a Special Option with focus on general knowledge in Business Administration. The courses are taught in a cohort format (you will go through all the courses with the same group of students from start to finish), in the evenings and on weekends. Approximately one third of the courses will be offered online. Due to the nature of this program, the seating is limited*.

The next Fresno Cohort is scheduled to begin in Fall 2023 (around 3rd week of August). The classes are held at Fresno State campus (Craig School of Business).
