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 and Supply Chain 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.
