Dual MBA/MS Finance and Risk Management
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.
The dual MS Finance and Risk Management/MBA program requires 66 semester hours (22 courses) including the full MS Finance curriculum plus the MBA requirements. Contact your graduate advisor for details.
If you want both your MS in Finance and Risk Management and the career advantages of an MBA's broad knowledge base consider doing both.
These requirements are subject to change. Please contact your advisor for current updates.
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.
