Wayne State University


Accomplish your goals – on your terms – at Detroit's Business School.

As a full-time student at the Mike Ilitch School of Business, you can complete a bachelor's degree in four years or less. (Tip: Navigate to your intended major using the menu at left to view its completion plan). Some students complete both a bachelor's degree and an M.B.A. in five years. Our B Start program can make that possible for incoming freshmen, and AGRADE supports high-performing juniors and seniors in this goal.

Many graduate students finish their degrees in three years or less while working and going to school part-time.

You can take classes during the day or in the evening. They’re available on our main campus in Midtown Detroit, online and on satellite campuses throughout southeast Michigan. You can choose to work and commute for classes, or you can live on campus for a more traditional college experience.
