To meet the need for business knowledge and skills as an enhancement to the technical engineering degree, students with an aptitude for engineering and the capacity to assume management responsibilities may complete a program which leads to the B.S. in one of the disciplines of engineering and Master of Business Administration (MBA). The dual degree program takes five years of full-time study with an Engineering Management degree but longer for other engineering programs. Students choosing this program must complete their bachelors degree in engineering and the required preparatory courses in business before being admitted to the Graduate School of Business.
Undergraduate students are encouraged to take the foundation courses during their sophomore, junior and senior years and apply for the MBA program during their senior year. Undergraduate students will not be accepted into the MBA program until they have completed their undergraduate degree and can therefore not take any 600 level courses until their undergraduate degree is granted. Foundation courses required for the MBA program are:
- ACCT 263 Accounting Analysis
- ECON 200 Economic Analysis
- BUSN 230 Business Statistics
- MKTG 310 Principles of Marketing
- BFIN 320 Principles of Finance
- OPER 340 Operations Management
- MGMT 350 Management and Organization
- BUSN 283 Business Law
- BMIS 235 Management Information Systems
Engineering students who complete BFIN 320 and ECON 200 may have ENSC 300 waived. Additional information about the M.B.A. program can be found in the graduate catalogue.
