The School of Engineering is excited to announce our partnership with the School of Business to offer a dual Master of Business Administration (MBA)/Master of Engineering (MENG) degree in fall 2015. By boosting both your engineering skills and your business acumen, while still allowing you to continue to work full time, this program is ideal for engineers who plan to move into management. The dual MBA/MENG program is designed with you, the working student in mind. The dual Master's degree courses are offered in the evening with distance learning option. You even have the option of beginning with either or both curriculums.
The standard MENG program is 27-credits and the standard MBA program is 57-credits. With the dual MBA/MENG degree, you are exempt from 15 credits in the MBA curriculum, bringing the total number of credits to 69. You can expect the program to take four to five years to complete, depending on the number of courses taken each semester.
