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) pathway. The pathway allows undergraduate students an opportunity to complete select requirements for both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees simultaneously. Upon successful completion of the ABM Pathway, students must submit an application (including application fee) to the graduate program.  Additional application requirements will be waived, and the student will be admitted to the program automatically. For more information about the ABM pathway, see the Graduate Catalog. NOTE: Applications for this ABM pathway are no longer being accepted. Current ABM students may complete the pathway in place at the time of application.
