Combined Degree in Information Systems & Operations Management
The Combined Degree program in Information Systems and Operations Management (BS/MS) is designed to provide students with computing, quantitative and applications skills vital to a business problem-solving setting. The ISOM program requirements span traditional academic disciplines to produce a multi-disciplinary major.
The university created combined degree programs to provide academically talented students an opportunity to complete a bachelor's and a master's degree in a shorter period of time. The program allows you to 'double-count' graduate courses toward both degrees, thus reducing the time it would normally take to graduate by a semester. The combined degree program reduces the cost of both degrees and enhances your marketability for career advancement.
Students from a variety of backgrounds, including business administration and engineering, enroll in the Combined Degree program. Students without a business background may need an additional semester in the program. To obtain the master's degree, there is no thesis requirement and no option to write a thesis in place of required course work.
- Completion of at least 60 credit hours with a UF GPA of 3.0 or better.
- Business students must complete all tracking requirements before they will be approved to pursue a combined degree program: ACG 2021, ACG 2071, CGS 2531 or ISM 3013, ECO 2013, ECO 2023, MAC 2233, STA 2023.
Students who are admitted into the Combined Degree program in ISOM may enroll in 12-16 credits of graduate course work during their junior and senior years. If earned with a grade of 'B' or better, these credits will satisfy requirements for both the bachelor's and master's degree, pending admission to the Graduate School. Students will then have 20-28 credits of course work over two Fall and Spring semesters at the graduate level to complete requirements for the master’s. If the student does not continue on to graduate school, the course work taken will still satisfy undergraduate degree requirements.
