The University of Cincinnati (UC) recently launched an accelerated programme through which Indian students can receive a bachelor’s degree in information technology along with an MBA.

The IT-MBA “ACCEND “programme is reserved for the highest-achieving students. According to the US university, it is the only programme of its kind in the world, “which allows students to gain both an undergraduate and a graduate degree while also earning over 18 months of full-time paid work experience through the UC Cooperative Education (co-op) programme.”

Admission is open to the highest-achieving students who need to apply a year before the due date of the session they wish to join. The university has intakes in August and January for the IT-MBA programme. The priority deadline for the next intake — August 2014 — is December 1, 2013. The final deadline for admission for the August 2014 intake is June 1.

Aspirants are required to fill in an online application and submit the past three years’ academic records and SAT scores.

The tuition cost is $25,000 a year. Students can receive scholarships ranging from $5,000 up to the full cost of tuition — $25,000 — per year. The university says all applicants are automatically reviewed for scholarships.
