What Are Dual MBA Programs?

A Dual MBA program is a type of degree program that enables students to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree and a second graduate degree simultaneously. These joint degree programs are structured so that students spend defined academic years in a single school or college.

Some examples of dual MBA programs include the MBA/MPP (Master of Public Policy) program offered by Wharton and Harvard Kennedy School, the MS/MBA Biotechnology offered by Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School, and the many Dual MBA programs offered by Columbia Business School. Dual MBA programs offer students the opportunity to specialize in two distinct fields while gaining a comprehensive knowledge of business practices and principles.

Benefits of Dual MBA Programs

Dual MBA programs offer many benefits to students. First and foremost, they provide a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of two fields at once. By taking courses in both areas, students can gain a more comprehensive education, which can help them stand out in the job market.

Dual MBA programs can also be a more efficient way to earn two degrees in a shorter time frame. For instance, many dual program students are able to finish their degrees in the same amount of time it would take to complete one degree program. This can be especially beneficial for busy professionals who want to pursue their educational goals without taking a lengthy break from work. Finally, dual MBA programs are also cost effective, as students often receive a discounted tuition rate for taking courses in both fields.

Types of Dual MBA Programs

When it comes to types of dual MBA programs, there are many different options available. Wharton offers dual MBA programs with Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies and Harvard Kennedy School. The University of Chicago Booth MBA program offers 10 joint-degrees and certificate programs, including an MBA/Doctor of Pharmacy dual degree. Columbia Business School has a wide range of dual degree options, while Harvard Business School has seven joint degree programs.

Most three year MBA dual programs require students to spend one year enrolled (and paying tuition) under one school and a second year enrolled under the other. Dual-degree MBA programs are also available at many top business schools, allowing students to pursue two master’s degrees at the same time. By taking advantage of core courses in one degree program that can double as electives in the other, dual-degree MBA programs are a fast track to completing two master’s programs.

Admissions Requirements for Dual MBA Programs

Applying to a dual MBA program requires meeting both the admissions requirements of the business school and the other graduate program you’re applying to. Depending on the program, you may need to meet other requirements, such as taking the GMAT or GRE, submitting a resume, and providing letters of recommendation. Also, many dual degree programs require an additional essay.

When considering admission requirements, be sure to check the requirements for both programs, as one may have stricter criteria than the other. For example, while one program may accept GMAT scores, the other may require a GRE score. Additionally, some programs may require additional tests, such as the TOEFL for international students. It’s important to pay attention to the details of each program and make sure you understand the requirements for both.

Finally, there may be additional costs associated with applying for a dual MBA program, such as application fees and test fees. Be sure to factor these into your budget when applying for a dual degree program.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Dual MBA Programs

When considering a dual MBA program, there are some key questions you should ask yourself. Here are some of the most common questions prospective students have about dual MBA programs:

A dual MBA program can provide you with an interdisciplinary approach to business and provide you with specialized knowledge in two areas. Additionally, it can reduce the time it takes to complete two separate degrees, as some courses can count for credit in both programs.

Dual MBA programs are offered by many top business schools, such as Wharton, Booth, and Darden. Each school offers different combinations of degrees, such as a MBA and a degree in public policy, healthcare administration, or international studies.

Admissions requirements vary by school, but in general, applicants should have a strong academic background and a bachelor’s degree in a related field. Additionally, you should have solid GMAT or GRE scores and a good resume.

A dual MBA program is a great way to gain a specialized knowledge in two areas of business, but it may not be right for everyone. It’s important to consider your career goals, the type of degree that best meets those goals, and the amount of time and effort required to complete the program.
