Courses & Curriculum


Program Structure

In the Warrington College of Business, graduate courses are organized in a modular system. The modular system allows students to focus intensely on course content over an eight-week period with a one week break in between. Our courses are designed to give you a deep dive into the world of analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

We offer four concentrations:

  • (NEW!) Business Analytics:
    Learn how to become a crucial translator of business functional needs into analytics processes and analyses. This concentration focuses on combining business functional knowledge and related data with analytics skills to meet the growing needs of analytics teams supporting businesses.
  • Data Science:
    Learn essential skills to design systems and processes to collect and analyze data. Acquire statistical and business intelligence tools necessary to extract and communicate crucial insights effectively. This concentration combines programming, information systems, business intelligence, and quantitative business courses to provide a technical foundation for students pursuing a career in data science.
  • Information Technology:
    Become an information technology architect. Learn how to design, implement, and manage systems that support a comprehensive IT strategy. In addition to technical competence, students will acquire the necessary skills to analyze and lead IT initiatives for any industry.
  • Supply Chain Management:
    Master the complexity of supply chain management. Learn to analyze and effectively manage the process of creating, transporting, and delivering goods and services to consumers. The coursework includes topics such as logistics, sourcing and IT systems.

Independent Study (QMB 6905)

An independent study involved doing a project, such as a system design, website implementation or data analysis, for an agency at UF or outside UF. For these projects, the student should develop the proposal in cooperation with the person who will actually be supervising the work. The work supervisor will have to sign off on the project before the independent study starts, and eventually report on the student’s performance. The instructor will then assign the grade for the course after he/she receives the report from the work supervisor. Email your advisor to obtain the independent study application which should be submitted prior to registering for the independent study.

Combined Degree

Students who are admitted into the MSISOM Combined Degree program may enroll in 12 credits (non-IS majors) or 16 credits (IS majors) 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 1-1.5 years 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.

Students only need to repeat graduate MSISOM courses for which they earn below a “C.” For undergraduate Combined Degree students who earn a B-, C+ or C in a course, the credits will not transfer to the graduate degree, but there is no need to repeat the course. Instead, students may take a graduate business elective during the graduate portion of the program to replace the credits that do not transfer over. This may extend their time in the graduate portion of the program, however.

During the undergraduate portion of the program, ISOM majors will take the
following courses:
