What is an MBA Dual Degree?
An MBA dual degree program, also known as a double degree program, is an educational program that allows students to pursue two separate degrees simultaneously. In a dual degree program, students typically study two different academic disciplines and earn two distinct degrees, often a master’s degree or Ph.D. This way, students can gain expertise in multiple areas and apply certain credits to both degrees.
Our MBA dual degree option allows students to combine an M.S. or Ph.D. degree from the Georgia Tech Colleges of Engineering, Computing, Design, and Liberal Arts.
Pairing a Georgia Tech graduate degree with an MBA gives students a competitive advantage and a unique blend of skills to accelerate their career growth. By bringing together advanced curriculum across multiple disciplines, the MBA dual degree programs cultivate a new generation of business leader.
MBA dual degree programs allow students to count 15 credit hours from their M.S./Ph.D. courses toward their MBA elective requirements, reducing the time required to complete both degrees. Students can complete an MBA with 39 credit hours instead of 54 credit hours.
