In appreciation of the converging needs of management and technology, the departments of Actuarial Science, Administrative Sciences, and Computer Science collaborate to offer a unique opportunity to students currently enrolled in their degree programs as well as alumni of those programs.

After completing a first master’s degree program at BU MET (with a minimum of 10 courses), students may apply up to 8 credits from the first degree toward a second degree (of 10 or more courses) offered by one of the above departments, thereby reducing their work by two courses. Note that while all master’s students are eligible to pursue a second master’s degree of their choice, only degree programs with a minimum of 10 courses are eligible for the course reduction.

Current MET Students & Alumni

Current degree-seeking students and alumni must submit a new application for the second master’s program, to be reviewed for admission by the same process as other graduate applicants to BU MET.

Applicants for a second master’s degree are eligible for an application fee waiver and may also request that application materials (including references and transcripts) be forwarded from the first application to the second.

For instructions on how to start your second master’s application, contact a Graduate Admissions Advisor for the appropriate department.

Prospective Students

Prospective students who have yet to enroll at BU MET should initially apply to and enroll in one program. After matriculating in one master’s program, students can work with their academic department and the Graduate Admissions Advisors listed below to prepare their second master’s application as they near completion of the first degree. Students may not enroll in two master’s degrees simultaneously.
