MBA Dual Degrees


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 one additional academic year onto the year of study of the longest program (for example, a two-year optics program will require a third year for the MBA; a four-year medicine program will require a fifth year for the MBA).  For agreements within Eller, study may be lengthened by only a semester.

If you are interested in one of our dual degree options, please submit one application for each program separately.
