Students who wish to earn both the Master of Science in Accounting and Taxation
degree (MSAT) and the Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) may apply
to be admitted to the Dual MSAT/MBA Degree Program. Upon completion of all
degree requirements, students will be awarded both the MSAT and MBA degrees.
Students must meet the admission criteria for each program. Students then
complete the degree requirements in the usual manner, with the exception of the
number of electives and certain prerequisite overlap.
A student who meets all the accounting prerequisites and is waived from the MBA
core classes can complete the dual degree with 54 credit hours. Students who
need to complete the accounting prerequisites and/or the MBA core classes will
add them to their program. With increasing demand for employees with both
financial and management background, the Dual MSAT/MBA Degree Program
provides an opportunity to earn both degrees in an efficient manner. The Dual
MSAT/MBA Degree Program may be completed on a full- or part-time basis.
