Choosing to earn a dual degree MBA/MS is an important decision, and it can be very advantageous. Not only do you earn two masters degrees, but you also save on 15 credits of coursework. More importantly, the two degrees complement each other and make you better prepared for significantly contributing day one in the workplace.
The MBA/MSHRM dual degree can be pursued in the following program/format:
- Full-time MBA / MSHRM in part-time format
- Part-time MBA / MSHRM in part-time format
The MSHRM is not offered in a full-time format. Students requiring a visa sponsorship cannot pursue the MBA/MSHRM dual degree.
Curriculum and Course Sequence
The curriculum consists of 75 credits:
- 42 credits in the Full-time MBA or Part-time MBA curriculum, including all core courses
- 33 credits in the MSHRM curriculum
The recommended course sequence is for an applicant to pursue the MBA curriculum before continuing to the MSHRM curriculum; however, exceptions are available for different course sequences, particularly for current MSHRM students who are applying to the dual degree program with Full- or Part-time MBA.
International applicants (not U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents) requiring Visa sponsorship are not eligible to pursue this dual degree.
