Combining Knowledge for a Substantial Competitive Advantage
The MBA dual-degree options offered at the University of Arizona provide a targeted path to professional success.
By combining the MBA with graduate degrees, Eller MBA students are uniquely positioned to create value in some of the most dynamic and interesting enterprises in today’s marketplace.
Dual-degree programs are structured so that students spend defined academic years in a single school or college. In this case, the dual degree adds additional time to your course of study—typically between one semester and one additional year. For agreements within Eller, the degrees may still be completed within two years.
If you are interested in one of our dual degree options, please submit one application for each program separately.
