Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) Program

High achieving students majoring in Information Systems who intend to pursue a master’s degree in Information Systems (with concentrations in IS General, Business Intelligence and Analytics, Information Security and Assurance, and IT Project Management) may apply to participate in the Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) Program. The program allows undergraduate students an opportunity to complete the requirements for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a compressed time frame. Participating undergraduate students may count up to 12 graduate credit hours toward both degrees and obtain a non-thesis master’s degree in the same field within 12 months of completing the bachelor’s degree or obtain a thesis-based master’s degree in the same field within 18 months of completing the bachelor’s degree. For more information about the ABM program, see the Graduate Catalog.
