Rider University students in the accounting program will have a more affordable path to earning an undergraduate and a graduate degree in five years beginning in fall 2020.
Rider says qualifying students can now receive a $2,000 scholarship that is renewable each year while they complete their undergraduate accounting degree. They will receive a 30 percent discount on the graduate program in accounting, business administration, finance or information systems.
Students must enroll in the 4+1 accelerated program as freshmen to be eligible for the new financial incentives.
Rider’s business and accounting programs on the graduate and undergraduate level hold dual accreditation by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This distinction is held by less than 2 percent of programs worldwide.
For several years, Rider’s Norm Brodsky College of Business has offered entering first-year students multiple pathways to complete an accelerated degree. One gives students the opportunity to earn an AACSB-accredited undergraduate business degree in as little as three years and a graduate business degree in just one year.
