Advanced Standing in Business Analytics ASBA

The Advanced Standing in Business Analytics (ASBA) program allows high-achieving undergraduate students to begin the Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) while completing their undergraduate degree requirements.

Students enrolled in this program take four graduate classes during their undergraduate years that count toward both undergraduate and graduate degrees. Students complete the remaining six MSBA degree course requirements as graduate students registered in the MSBA program. No more than four graduate courses may be completed while the student is enrolled as an undergraduate.
