The degree is offered as part of Mercy Colleges nationally-recognized and award-wining Honors program. Mercy College Honors classes average less than 20 students in a collaborative environment that focuses on personal attention.

As part of the Three-Year Degree program, students will participate in Business in Action, a noncredit mini-seminar prior to the first semester of enrollment. The Three-Year Degree provides students a valuable credential and a head start on beginning their careers, and earning a salary, a year before their peers.

Applicants should have a high school grade point average of 3.2 or above in a challenging, college-preparatory curriculum and demonstrated leadership and service. Submission of SAT and ACT scores is optional for admission.
