Dual Degree Option: Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research/Master of Business Administration

For those students interested in an interdisciplinary education that will provide them with a strong foundation in business, a solid background in industrial engineering, and an in-depth research or project experience, the College of Engineering and the Isenberg School of Management offer an M.S.I.E.O.R./M.B.A. dual master’s degree. In this 72-credit program (42 in the Management and 30 in Engineering), students typically complete the two degrees in three years of study, and most of the required M.B.A. coursework (34 credits) in the first year. During the second and third years, students take a total of 30 credits in Engineering (17 core course credits, 7-10 elective credits, and a 3-6 credit thesis) as well as an M.B.A. practicum. Students applying to the M.S.I.E.O.R./M.B.A. dual degree program must meet the respective admission standards for each program. The GRE is required for the M.S.I.E.O.R. degree and is admissible for MBA admissions as well. Students submit only one application, which is reviewed by both programs. Applicants must be accepted to both programs to enter the M.S.I.E.O.R./M.B.A. dual degree program.
