Joint MS/MBA Program

What is the MS/MBA program?

The Mechanical Engineering Department and the Marriott School of Management offer a joint program leading to both a MS degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. The program provides advanced training in Mechanical Engineering along with management skills of the MBA program. The degrees are received simultaneously and are conferred separately by the two departments.

How long does it take to complete the MS/MBA program?

On average, it takes students 3-4 years to complete the MS/MBA program. If a student wants to finish in 3 years, it would be beneficial to start the MS program during the spring term prior to the fall semester for which he/she was admitted.

How to apply for the MS/MBA program?

The applicant must apply separately to both the mechanical engineering MS program and the MBA program, meeting the requirements of each department. In addition, the student must specify his/her intention to participate in the joint MS/MBA program in both statements of intent.
