What will I learn?

This intensive Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) program is essentially a double major, providing graduates with the skills, credentials, and flexibility to lead clinical or managerial teams using a behavioral approach.

Developing as experts in both evolving fields, professionals can work directly with patients, consult in a corporate environment, and combine the fields for a unique specialty. Blending the two programs into a master’s in ABA and OBM gives students a wider range of expertise and potential careers. Florida Tech’s master’s in ABA and OBM program is among only a few in the world offering this degree option.

With a master’s in ABA and OBM, graduates are equipped for different types of behavioral consults. Applied Behavior Analysts (ABAs) help to better the lives of children and adults struggling with behaviors ranging from difficulty with everyday social interactions to complex conditions such as autism spectrum disorders or substance abuse by applying a systematic scientific approach. Organizational behavior managers (OBMs) also use a scientific behavioral approach, but address human behavior issues in the workplace, such as improving employee productivity and efficiency.

Professional Culture—Flexible Program And Schedule

Florida Tech students are made up of a diverse mix of full-time workers in the local area to students from around the globe seeking to obtain higher-level management skills. Students who choose a master’s in ABA and OBM build the foundation necessary to become a well-respected professional in the healthcare and business community.

The program offers daytime, evening, and weekend class schedules, and is in close proximity to a thriving medical community, including hospitals and clinics that provide internships and applied learning opportunities for students.

Diverse Career Options

Because of the program’s varying experience in clinical and business settings, graduates with a master’s in ABA and OBM work in many different public and private organizations, or combine the two. Some of the career areas graduates pursue include:

Business, nonprofit, and government consulting
Safety improvement consulting
