MBA & MS-Finance
This dual degree program takes advantage of course overlap between the MBA and MS-Finance curricula, and allows students to receive both degrees upon completion of a minimum of 75 graduate credits. Students can reduce the total credits required if they have had acceptable prior courses equivalent to MBA core courses. Both the MBA and the MS-Finance are offered through evening courses targeted to full-time working professionals, and through online courses available to students worldwide.
The MBA requires a minimum of 60 credits without a concentration, and at least 63 credits with a concentration. The MSF requires a minimum of 30 credits. The most popular concentration within the MBA is in finance. To earn the Dual MBA and MSF as proposed would require 75 credits. The opportunity to earn a second master's degree instead of a finance concentration would entail an additional 12 credits (four courses) over what it takes to earn just the MBA with the finance concentration.
Students who wish to pursue the dual MBA and MS-Finance must meet the entrance requirements of both programs.
