Business Administration/Computer Science and Information Systems (Dual MBA/MS)

Through cross-recognition of courses between the MBA and MS in Computer Science and Information Systems program, this dual master’s program requires 15 fewer credit hours to complete than if the degrees were completed independently of each other. The program leads to two degrees: a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a concentration in Computer Information Systems and a Master of Science (MS) in Computer Science and Information Systems with a concentration in Information Systems.

This dual master’s program is available in a traditional, on-campus format or through a format that combines the Management courses in the NetPlus! format (online with on-campus sessions every six weeks) with the Computer Science and Information Systems courses in the multi-media Cyber Classroom format (tailored to the student’s, needs from completely online to completely on-campus).


Forty-five (45) to fifty-seven (57) credits as follows:

A. MBA Foundation Courses (0-12 credits)

Courses can be waived if previous equivalent or similar undergraduate or graduate course work completed:

C. Management Information Systems (3 credits)

Also double-counting for the Information Systems concentration, one from:

E. Information Systems Concentration (15 credits)


At most one independent study course is allowed toward program requirements under the non-thesis option.

Students may be required to take certain prerequisites in computer science based on previous coursework.  Please see the Computer Science and Information Systems (Master of Science)  requirements for details.
