MBA + M.S. in International Business
By combining a Lerner MBA with an M.S. in international business, you’ll be equipped to succeed in today’s global business world.
MBA courses will ground you in the fundamentals of management and give you the skills that will make you a more effective manager. In your international business courses, you’ll learn how to understand cultural differences and communicate effectively. The elective courses you choose will deepen your knowledge of economics, finance, entrepreneurship or IT in the global context.
The 59-credit MBA/M.S.I.B. dual degree program combines the required courses for the MBA program with additional courses from the M.S.I.B. program.
As an MBA/M.S.I.B. dual degree student, you must complete the same sequence and timing of required M.S.I.B. required courses as your fellow students in the M.S. program. You can complete your MBA courses before or after the M.S. required curriculum.
Consult the M.S.I.B. program director for advising on coordinating the requirements.
Required MBA Courses (29 credits)
Required M.S.I.B. Courses (30 credits)
To be admitted, you must apply directly to the dual degree program and meet the admission requirements of the MBA and M.S.I.B. programs. The admissions directors for each program will evaluate your application separately and will apply the criteria specified by their respective programs.
The GMAT and GRE are optional for both the M.S.I.B and MBA programs.
If you are already enrolled in either individual program, you may apply for a change of degree to the dual program prior to receiving the first degree. You must complete both programs after you are admitted to the dual degree program in order for the dual degree to be conferred.
