The Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NAME) within the Rackham School of Graduate Studies and The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan offer a dual degree program enabling a small number of qualified students to pursue concurrent work in naval architecture and marine engineering and business administration studies leading to the MBA/MSE degrees.
The program is arranged so that all requirements are completed in three years of enrollment. The degrees are awarded simultaneously. This combined degree program is not open to students who have earned either the MBA or MSE (NAME) degree. Students already registered in the first year of either program may apply.
STUDENTS ADMITTED TO THIS DUAL DEGREE PROGRAM MUST SATISFY THE FOLLOWING DEGREE REQUIREMENTS:
Due to the significant overlap between the MBA requirements and the MSE (NAME) requirements, the total credit hours for the dual degree program could range from 63 to 69, depending upon the graduate specialty area in the NAME department and the background of the student. No course work completed prior to admission in either program may be counted toward the MBA requirement of the dual program.
The dual program may begin with studies in either school. However, because of the sequenced nature of core courses in the MBA program, most students will find it advantageous to start with year one in the Business School. During year two courses are taken in both schools. Students will finish the program in NAME. Students who wish to begin in NAME should see a counselor in the Business School to arrange an appropriate plan of study.
Applicants interested in the MBA/MSE (NAME) program must file separate applications to and be admitted by both schools. Applicants must indicate on both applications that they are applying for this specific dual degree program.
Michigan’s Ross School of Business applicants must take the GMAT for admission.
The Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering applicants must take the GRE for admission.
