Accelerated Programs

Mount Mercy has become a leading choice of adult students seeking a baccalaureate degree while maintaining full-time employment. Our accelerated programs are tailored to meet the needs of the non-traditional student, age 23 or older with at least three years of work experience.

Recognizing that life experience is a valid source of knowledge, and the premise that adults are self-directed and intrinsically motivated, accelerated courses are formatted into five or ten week block periods in which students attend class one night per week for three or four hours.

In-class hours are supplemented with a range of cooperative and individual learning opportunities outside of the classroom to allow students an opportunity to maintain the balance between personal and professional life while pursuing a baccalaureate degree.

Mount Mercy offers accelerated programs in the following: Accounting, Applied Management, Business, Computer Science, Finance, Healthcare Administration, Healthcare Leadership, Human Resource Management, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, and RN to BSN Completion.
