Through cross-recognition of courses between the MBA and MA in Social Sciences program, this dual master’s program requires six fewer credits 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 International Business and a Master of Arts (MA) in Social Sciences with a concentration in Global Studies.
This dual master’s program is available in a traditional, on-campus format. Students pursuing the NetPlus! MBA format will need to take the non-MGT courses in the format offered (likely on campus).
