Accelerated graduate program now open to Accounting majors

Beginning in winter 2018, highly qualified Mike Ilitch School of Business Accounting majors will be able to participate in the Accelerated Graduate Enrollment (AGRADE) Program, which can lessen the time and cost of earning a graduate degree in the Mike Ilitch School of Business. 

AGRADE students can apply up to 12 credits from an approved list of courses toward both their undergraduate and graduate business degrees, saving as much as one-third off the total cost of a WSU graduate business program.
