Degree Programs

Dual MBA and Master of Arts in Sustainable International Development

Program Description

Combining ethical business theory and nonprofit management skills with a framework of sustainable international development, a dual degree in these two fields prepares students for management roles in development organizations as well as in corporations that practice social investment. 

The dual MBA/MA is an intensive two-year program that requires 82 credit hours (52 credits in the MBA program and 30 credits in the MA SID program) taken over a minimum of five semesters, as well as an MBA Team Consulting Project (TCP). The course of study is dependent upon each student’s entrance status into the Heller School. The formula presented below is an example of a plan of study.

Students in dual degree programs fulfill the complete requirements for each degree, earning degrees for both programs.
