Accelerated Bachelors/Masters (ABM) Program

High achieving students majoring in Management who intend to pursue a master’s degree in Management (with concentrations in Organizational Leadership, Social Innovation and Not-for-Profit Management, and Supply Chain 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.
