Dual Degree Programs
MBA Program
 


MBA-MSIS Program

The Coles College of Business offers a dual degree program leading to both the Masters of Business Administration and Masters of Science in Information Systems designations. It responds to the increasing need for leaders who can integrate sophisticated management practices with strong technology skills. The programs are completed in 51 credit hours rather than the 72 hours that would be necessary if the degrees were pursued separately.

More specifically, this program prepares students for competitive leadership and managerial positions in careers requiring extensive understanding of an interaction with information technology. These different skill sets intersect in areas such as global project management, IT strategy and policy, IT procurement, and contracting IT solutions. This degree program allows students to earn the two masters degrees in a seamless way, and is a stepping stone in the career path to a chief information officer (CIO) or technology entrepreneur.

Curriculum and Degree Program Requirements

The program consists of a minimum of 51 hours of graduate study of which 27 hours are in areas of Business Administration and 24 hours are in the areas of Information Systems. Additional credit hours may be taken depending on each student’s academic background or areas of concentration in the MSIS Program.

Students are required to take the core courses from both the MBA and the MSIS programs. Additionally, students must take at least two additional electives in the MBA curriculum (one of which must be focused on international issues).

Application Process
The admissions standards and application process for the MBA-MSIS dual degree program are equivalent to those for the stand-alone programs. Follow the same procedures for applying to either the MBA or MSIS program, noting in the application that you are interested in the dual degree program.
