Accelerated BBA-ECON to MBA, MS BUSA, MSFA, MS NPMT, MSOL

Undergraduate students may earn credit toward the following degrees while completing a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Economics (ECON) through the Business Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s (ABM) degree program: Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Business Analytics (MS BUSA), Master of Science in Financial Analysis (MSFA), Master of Science in Nonprofit Management (MS NPMT), and Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL). Students accepted into the Business ABM program will be eligible to take up to two courses (six credit hours) from the list of courses below concurrently with their undergraduate courses, depending on the particular graduate program. These two courses will count toward both the aforementioned graduate degree(s) and the advanced business-related course requirement in the undergraduate ECON degree. The graduate courses also allow undergraduate students to build specific career-oriented focus areas that expand on advanced undergraduate course work.
