    Are you looking for a yeshiva that has a built in college program? Or do you want to go to a regular college and go to said yeshiva as well?

    You dont mention your present knowledge of talmud. You have to realize you cant just start off with semicha. Unless you are capable of managing to learn a blatt gemoro with rashi and tosfos and meforshim on your own, then you are not yet ready to take a semicha course. Using a short cut like the kitsur wont get you there.

You can maintain such an academic schedule while learning in a semicha program (rabbinic ordination) at*:

  1. Yeshiva University; Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS)
  2. Kollel L'Horaah Ohr Reuven
  3. Yeshiva Torah Vodaath

  • Among others which I'll add as I recall

    However, such maintenance may prove quite difficult depending on how flexibly you can design your academic schedule and how many years you want this whole process to take.

You can check out Ohr Yisroel in Brooklyn. You can get Semicha and an MBA under one roof.
