By combining the required courses of the MBA program with the required and elective courses of the M.S. in information systems and technology management, you can earn both degrees with a total of 59 credits.

Lerner’s Office of Graduate and MBA Programs and the Department of Accounting & Management Information Systems jointly administer this dual degree program.

The MBA/M.S. in information systems and technology management dual degree program qualifies as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) OPT (Optional Practical Training) program. This allows international students in a technical field to apply for a 24-month extension to their OPT period.

Program Requirements
