Dual Degrees

Earn a Dual MBA/MS or MS/MS Degree


Because we are the largest accredited graduate business school in the region, we offer more dual degree options than any other school. You may pursue an MBA and MS dual degree or an MS/MS dual degree.

Please see the catalog for course descriptions.

 

MBA/MS Dual

If you are looking for a highly specialized degree but still want an MBA, consider a dual degree. As the largest Business School in the region, we offer many 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.

  • Complete 36 MBA semester hours
  • Complete the specified coursework for your chosen MS focus (accounting, decision sciences, finance, information systems, international business, management or marketing)
  • Additional elective coursework may be required to meet minimum dual semester hour requirements
  • Dual degree privileges are not available with an MS in Health Administration

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.
