Accelerated B.S. in Operations and Information Management (O.I.M.)/M.S. in Management Information Systems (MIS)

The program is open to all senior undergraduates who major in operations and information management. These students can participate in our accelerated program, applying the credit hours towards both their undergraduate and graduate degrees. By taking and paying for the courses only once (at the lower undergraduate rate), you can shave time and cost off of your graduate degree, potentially earning your M.S. in MIS within a year after earning your B.S.

This program leads to both the B.S. in O.I.M. and M.S. in MIS degrees. Students who want to complete this program must identify themselves to the Department of Operations Management and Information Systems as majors who will complete the accelerated program.


To qualify, you must have:

  • Completed 90 semester hours (senior standing)
  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Apply for admission to the M.S. in MIS program under the special provisions of this program and meet the application deadline.

Please refer to the graduate catalog for admission and program requirements.
