Accelerated Management (AMP) Program (AB/MBA)


Outstanding Rollins students have an opportunity to obtain both the College’s Artium Baccalaureus (AB) degree   and the Master of Business of Administration (MBA) degree in five (5) years through the College’s Accelerated Management Program (AMP). The first three years of study are completed in the College of Liberal Arts; the second two years are completed in the Crummer Graduate School of Business through the Early Advantage MBA program.

As part of the structure required by the Accelerated Management Program, students agree to adhere to specific academic and experiential requirements listed below. Acceptance into the Early Advantage MBA program is conditional upon the student’s satisfactory completion of these requirements:

  • Term grade point averages of 3.2 or better while participating in the program and a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or better by the end of the third year.
  • Attendance at all scheduled AMP workshops during the first three (3) years.
  • Completion of all general education curriculum, major, and minor (if declared) requirements prior to the end of the third year.
  • Completion of at least one (1) credit-bearing internship prior to the end of the third year.
  • Completion of at least 111 earned semester hours by the end of the third year.
  • Submission of a competitive score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) as set forth by the Crummer Graduate School of Business Admissions Office prior to the beginning of the spring semester of the third year.
  • Completion of graduation petition and graduation compliance audit forms (general education, major, and minor) in spring term of the third year.
  • Declaration of a major and submission of a completed three-year degree planner to the AMP Coordinator before April 1st in the spring term of the first year.
  • Students must submit the required Crummer application materials including GMAT scores to the MBA Admissions Office by January 15th of their third year. Decisions will be rendered prior to the end of the spring term of the third year. Applicants must meet the requirements set forth by the Crummer Graduate School of Business Admissions Office. Completion of the AMP minimal expectations is a requirement of the AMP program but does not guarantee admission into Crummer.

The Accelerated Management Program Committee reviews students’ records annually to monitor program compliance including adherence to the college’s honor code and community standards. Students who fail to adhere to the minimal expectations may be dismissed from the Accelerated Management Program and will follow the standard graduation requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree (Artium Baccalaureus)   as outlined in the Rollins College Course Catalog. Students may also voluntarily withdraw from the program at any time by submitting their request in writing to the Program Advisor.

Students not accepted into the Accelerated Management Program as part of the admissions process may be invited to join the program after the completion of a successful first semester, as defined by achieving at least a 3.2 GPA and adhering to the college’s honor code and community standards. Students must accept the invitation to join the program no later than April 15th. Students will be notified of acceptance by the conclusion of the spring semester of their first year. Application to the Accelerated Management Program may not be made in the second or third year.
