Accelerated B.B.A./M.S. in Finance with a concentration in Business Finance or Real Estate


This program allows outstanding undergraduates to begin the coursework for the Master of Science in Business Administration during their senior year. Students are encouraged to begin planning to enter the Accelerated B.B.A./M.S. program early in their undergraduate careers in consultation with their advisor in the Department of Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate.

Working with the undergraduate and graduate academic coordinators, undergraduates selected into this program begin a carefully tailored course of study which will allow them to complete their B.B.A. degree while they also begin the coursework toward their M.S.

To apply, students must have a minimum 3.25 grade point average, and must submit two reference letters and a copy of their transcript to the Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate. Each applicant will complete an interview with the graduate academic coordinator in finance, insurance and real estate.

Students must also apply to the Graduate School for the accelerated B.B.A./M.S. program, which allows them to take graduate courses in finance, insurance and real estate. To continue in the program past the B.B.A., students must apply for full admission into the Graduate School and into the Finance, Insurance and Real Estate department’s M.S. program.

Only in ABM programs, up to 9 hours of graduate course work may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. However, any graduate coursework will not apply to undergraduate GPA.
