MBA-MS in Sport Management Dual Degree

By coordinating the programs of study in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and the Master of Science in Sport Management (MS) via the dual MBA/MS degree, students will be able to obtain both an MBA and an MS in Sport Management degree in 63 credit hours. Taken independently, these two nationally accredited graduate degrees would normally consist of 84 credit hours. However, by coordinating the programs of study, students can receive both degrees in 21 fewer credit hours.

It is the intent of the dual degree program for selected candidates to pursue both degrees simultaneously, as outlined in the sample program of study presented below. However, students may pursue either degree first and subsequently the second degree or may pursue both degrees simultaneously.

Students seeking to enter the dual degree program must apply separately to each program and be admitted independently to the College of Business and Economics’ Master of Business Administration program and the College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences’ Master of Sport Management program. The selection processes will be administered concurrently spring semester and students must satisfy admission requirements of both programs.
