Accelerated Management Program (AMP)
The Rollins College 3/2 Accelerated Management Program (AMP) combines a four-year Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree and a two-year Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree into a five-year program. The first three years are completed in the College of Arts & Sciences while the second two years are completed in the Crummer Graduate School of Business. Acceptance into the MBA program at the conclusion of the third year is conditional upon the satisfactory completion of these requirements. Successful students earn their BA and their MBA in five, rather than six years.
Academic Planning in AMP
Students in the Accelerated Management Program have unique needs and academic requirements in order to ensure that they are eligible to join the Crummmer Graduate School of Business. In addition to being requirement to maintain above a 3.2 grade point average, students must satisfy all of their major and general education requirements in their first three years of study at Rollins College. The completion of a 3-Year Plan allows students to ensure that they will be able to complete their undergradate requirements. Students should build these plans with their faculty advisors or Lauren Murray, AMP Academic Advisor, as early in their academic careers as possible.
Student Focus: Christian Bromley
Christian is a second year student currently pursuing a dual major in Studio Art and Art History. He summarized his thoughts on the Accelerated Management Program below:
"As I went to visit the business programs I was accepted to around the country, I was particularly interested in the diverse education opportunities provided by AMP. Never in a million years had I expected that I could combine a undergraduate double major in Studio Art and Art History with an MBA in five years. This combination of the small liberal arts experience with a great MBA program is what drew me to Rollins. During my first year, I have had some amazing experiences including an independent study in architectural design, a service learning course working with stroke patients and photographic therapy, a one year marketing internship with a central Florida real estate firm, and a field study at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. After my next two years at Rollins, and my time at the Crummer Graduate School of Business, I hope to work as an advertising executive, combining my interest in art/design as well as business, and also begin establishing a real estate development firm."
