The Supply Chain Management accelerated program allows Business Administration majors, Business Systems and Processes majors, and Business Administration minors to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees in a shorter time frame. 

In the accelerated B.S./M.S. program, students take up to three 600- to 700-level courses (9 units) in place of certain undergraduate courses, which count toward both B.S. and M.S. degrees.  Suggested course replacements are outlined below: 

Business Administration major, Project Management and Business Analysis concentration (most flexibility): 

  • EBTM 604 in place of EBTM 343 or  EBTM 610 in place of EBTM 365

A bachelor’s degree is awarded after all the bachelor’s degree requirements are met, normally in the fourth year. The  M.S. in Supply Chain Management degree is awarded at the completion of the remaining graduate courses.

Project, Program, Portfolio Management P.B.C.

Students interested in Project, Portfolio, and Program Management may consider the accelerated B.S./P.B.C. program.  In this option, students take up to two 600- to 700-level courses (6 units) in place of certain undergraduate courses, which count toward both a B.S. degree and a post-baccalaureate graduate certificate.  Interested students should contact the Program Director for an individualized course plan.

“ This program was not only a fast lane to success, but also an incredible growth opportunity. My peers, professors, and the challenging curriculum exposed me to alternative problem solving methods and concepts early on in my college career. I was able to apply these complex topics to my undergrad classes and professional experiences. ”
