Dual MS-MBA Program
CBE and the Haslam College of Business offer an integrated program leading to the conferral of the Master of Science with a major Chemical Engineering and the Master of Business Administration degree with a major in Business Administration.
The establishment of the dual degree program addresses the critical need for personnel trained in both engineering and management who can integrate an increasingly complex body of knowledge for rapid introduction of new products to the marketplace. The objective of the dual degree program is to prepare graduates to take a leading management role in companies that must react quickly to a dynamic market where forces of competition require rapid changes via short cycles in design, manufacturing, and product development.
Applicants for the MS-MBA program must make separate applications to and be accepted by Graduate Admissions for the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering and Graduate Admissions for the Master of Business Administration. Students who are accepted into the MS-MBA program will be assigned an advisor in each of the two majors, who will be responsible for course approval and supervision of the students’ progress through the dual program.
Questions should be directed to Eric Boder, director of graduate studies.
