Some mathematics majors go directly on to graduate school in mathematics or a related field. Places where Dominican students have gone for graduate school include The Ohio State University, Northeastern Illinois University, and the University of Akron.
Mathematics majors considering an MBA degree are encouraged to pursue Dominican’s five-year BA or BS/MBA program. Students should apply before the end of their junior year. They generally need a 3.0 GPA to be accepted into the BA or BS/MBA program.
Accepted students may enroll in two MBA courses during their senior year—one course each semester—and credit will be given toward their undergraduate degree. The remaining 10 graduate business courses may be taken when students complete the undergraduate degree. This shortens the time needed to earn the MBA degree.
