The dual degree allows students to obtain the generalist MBA degree and the specialization of the MS with fewer courses than it would take to earn them separately. This is accomplished by recognizing required and elective courses common to both programs.
As the largest graduate Business School in the region, we offer several different choices for a dual degree within the Business School and several others in collaboration with other schools and colleges. Work toward both an MBA and a specific master of science degree. Dual degree programs combine the career advantages of the MBAs broad knowledge base with the specialized skills of an MS degree.
The dual MS in Accounting/MBA degree program requires at least 66 semester hours including the full MS in Accounting curriculum plus the MBA requirements. Contact your graduate advisor for details.
If you want both your MS in Accounting and the career advantages of an MBA's broad knowledge base consider doing both.
Note: Each course is typically three semester hours.
Admission standards are specific and varied for each degree. Therefore, applicants must meet specific admission standards for the degree for which they apply.
If students choose to pursue a dual degree after they have joined a graduate program, they must meet the admissions requirements of the degree they intend to add, irrespective of their performance in their current program.
