Dual degrees add an extra element of customization, allowing you to earn two degrees in a condensed time period. To obtain a dual degree, the student must satisfy the admission, course, and examination requirements of both programs. Students can pursue the Dual Degree program at any point during a degree program as long as they declare they are doing a Dual Degree program before they complete requirements for graduation. Dual degree options include:
The joint Master of Accountancy/MBA program allows students to develop in-depth accounting and financial management expertise along with a broader general business perspective. Graduates meet the educational requirements to sit for the CPA exam in most jurisdictions and are particularly well-suited for successful careers in corporate accounting and finance.
The joint MBA/MS in Finance program allows students to simultaneously build a strong business strategy and management foundation and deepen their understanding of corporate finance, investment analytics, and modelling. The Finance coursework is delivered in a lock-step online format, meaning students work through a pre-determined sequence of classes to complete that degree.
The joint MBA/MS in MIT program allows students to develop a broad general business background along with a deeper understanding of information technology. Students are given the information needed to manage information technology firms as well as other areas of business.
In addition to the above approved dual MBA degree programs, you may seek dual master's degrees in any two areas of your choosing. Students can pursue the Dual Degree program at any point during a degree program as long as they declare they are doing a Dual Degree program before they complete requirements for graduation.
The requirements for the program are:
- All degree requirements, including research tools, foreign languages, comprehensive examination, thesis and deficiencies, must be met for both programs.
- Up to 20% of the total graduate credit hours required for both degrees taken individually may be double counted, e.g., counted as credit for both
- The double–counted courses must be appropriate for each degree.
- You will not receive either degree until coursework for both degrees is completed.
