Business Administration B.S./Supply Chain Management M.S.

Earn both your bachelor's and master's degrees in less time and set yourself up for supply chain and project management careers. 

Admitted Business Administration (BUAD) majors in the Project Management & Business Analysis (PMBA) concentration are eligible to apply for the accelerated B.S./M.S. Supply Chain Management Program. This program allows students to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees in a shorter time frame.

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

  • EBTM 604 (Offered only online and in the fall term) in place of EBTM 343 or EBTM 610 (Offered only online and in the summer term) in place of EBTM 365 
  • EBTM 735 (Offered in the spring term only) in place of EBTM 462 
  • EBTM 740 (Offered only online and in the spring) in place of EBTM 454 

A bachelor’s degree is awarded in business administration 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 seven graduate courses.
