Candidates normally register for three semesters in the Questrom School of Business and two semesters in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GRS), but they also may cross-register and take courses in both schools in any semester. Full-Time MBA students must successfully complete a minimum of 40 credits in Questrom and 24 credits in the Department of Economics; the other 16 credits may be taken in Questrom and the Department of Economics; the remaining 16 credits may be taken in Questrom, the Department of Economics, or, with prior approval, elsewhere in the University.

Requirements in quantitative methods and micro- and macroeconomic theory are the same as those for the MA in Economics. The minimum requirements for the respective degrees must be fulfilled in this dual degree program. Subject to the respective program directors’ approval, certain course substitutions may be permitted. For those students who are in the Professional Evening MBA program, the degree is 72 credits, including 32 Questrom credits, 24 Economics credits, and 16 credits taken in Questrom or the Department of Economics.

For part-time students in the MBA+ MA in Economics program, please note: Many of the economics classes are only available during the day. You should not expect to be able to complete the MA degree entirely in the evening. You can find the MA in Economics requirements here.
