Dual Degree Graduate Programs

The Graduate School of Management (GSM) offers dual degree programs with other schools and colleges within the University.

Once enrolled, students have the opportunity to formally concentrate in Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Management, Marketing, Operations & Technology Management, and Strategy & Business Analysis. Students may also customize their programs by choosing from a broad array of advanced-level electives.

All incoming students are required to attend MBA/MS/MBA Pre-Term (MG 600 MBA Orientation), which carries a fee of $300.

Dual degree candidates must fulfill the degree and residency requirements of both schools in which they are enrolled. The curriculum chart represents the minimum 40-credit residency of the School of Management MBA. The order of courses may vary slightly by program.

Students who waive core courses or transfer credits are required to take an additional School of Management elective to fulfill the residency requirement. If any GSM course is counted toward the other degree program, the course must be replaced with a GSM elective.
