Gabelli School of Business students have the exclusive opportunity to enroll in our 4 + 1 program to complete a bachelor’s degree and one of several master’s degrees in a total of five years. Receive the same Fordham education in less time, so you can graduate with an advanced degree, ready to inspire positive global change.

Additionally, GMAT/GRE waivers are available for Fordham undergraduate students who qualify.

Current Gabelli School students should visit our 4 + 1 Advising page for application instructions and specific requirements. They also can contact Assistant Dean Brian Dunn at or 718-817-5203.

Gabelli School applicants who want to learn more about possible 4 + 1 combinations should see the program descriptions below.

The 4 + 1 Program in Accounting and the 4 + 1 Program in Taxation are specifically designed for students seeking CPA licensure. Taken as fifth-year programs, these allow accounting students to complete the additional 30 credits beyond an undergraduate degree that are required to sit for the CPA exam.

These programs let students complete an undergraduate degree in public accounting, applied accounting and finance, or accounting information systems, and then continue for an MS in Accounting or Taxation.

Additionally, students completing any BS degree at the Gabelli School of Business may continue as part of the 4 + 1 Program in Media Management, which they can earn within 12 months of receiving their bachelor’s degree.
