These programs offer students the opportunity to obtain two graduate degrees or a graduate degree and a baccalaureate degree in less time and at less expense than pursuing the degrees separately.

  • MBA/Juris Doctor 
  • MBA/Medical Doctor 
  • MBA/Master of Management in Energy
  • MBA/Master of Global Management
  • MBA/Master of Accounting (MACCT)
