Combined B.S. and M.S. Program (4+1)
This program is designed for outstanding undergraduate students and allows students to pursue a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Hospitality Management while completing their Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Hospitality Management. Students may take advantage of the overlap of courses in the B.S. and M.S. programs. The combined B.S./M.S. program accelerates completion of the Master’s degree in a shorter time period. This program is for the Hospitality Management B.S./M.S. program only.
Admission into this program requires current enrollment in the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management at FIU. In addition, an applicant must have completed between 75-90 credit hours of course work with a G.P.A. of 3.2 or higher.
Students must submit the 4+1 Application by the first semester of the senior year with a recommendation from the Assistant Dean, Dr. Diann Newman.
