Seeks exceptional Eller Management Information Systems (MIS) and Operations Management (OM) students who now have the opportunity to earn both their bachelor’s degree and their Master’s in MIS degree in as few as five years.
The Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) in MIS allows students who qualify for the program to complete 9 -12 credits of graduate level coursework during the fourth year of their undergraduate program and count those credits toward both their BSBA and Master’s. After just one additional year of graduate courses, students in the AMP MIS graduate from the UA with both a BSBA and Master’s in MIS.
The AMP MIS is well-suited for students who aim to gain further specialization and helps give an academic experience that goes well beyond what you receive as an undergraduate.
