Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s (ABM) degree program is a B.S. in Sport and Leisure Management/M.S in Sport Commerce. This program allows outstanding undergraduate students to begin the coursework for the M.S. in Sport Commerce during their senior year. Students are encouraged to begin planning to enter the ABM program early in their undergraduate career in consultation with their advisor. Working with the undergraduate and graduate academic coordinators, undergraduates selected into this program begin a carefully tailored course of study that will allow them to complete their B.S. in Sport and Leisure Management degree while also beginning coursework toward their M.S. in Sport Commerce degree.

To apply, students must have a minimum 3.25 grade point average, submit two letters of reference, and provide a copy of their academic transcript to the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort Management. Each applicant will complete an interview with the graduate academic coordinator of the M.S. in Sport Commerce program. To continue in the program past the B.S. in Sport and Leisure Management, students must apply for full admission to both the Graduate School and the M.S. in Sport Commerce program. In the ABM program, up to 12 hours of graduate coursework may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. However, any graduate coursework will not apply to a student’s undergraduate grade point average.
