About the MBA-MSBA Dual Degree

The MBA-MSBA Dual Degree can be completed in 2.5 years and culminates in the completion of two graduate degree programs. Prospective applicants need to submit their graduate application to both programs. The program is open to students already accepted to the MBA Program, as well as potential students who have not yet applied to the University of Minnesota. Under this study plan, students begin their dual degree with the MBA program and they start MSBA coursework in summer semester of year one.
