Graduate Dual Degree Programs
The dual MBA/MSAT program is for those without a business undergraduate degree who wish to fulfill the requirements to become a CPA. It is also aimed at those working in a corporate environment who would benefit from having a specialized degree in accounting and an MBA.
Applicants must have an undergraduate degree in accounting or take the equivalent accounting courses. You can take those courses as part of the degree program or as an accounting certificate prior to enrolling in the MSAT/MBA.
This dual degree program allows full- and part-time graduate students to earn both a Master of Engineering and Master of Business Administration by taking a total of 60 total credits. This is 15 fewer credits than if the degrees were pursued separately. Coursework includes applied projects, where you will formulate marketing and business plans for area companies.
Earn a specialized graduate certificate in finance, insurance, international business, management, marketing, or a general discipline that you select. Applicants must have an MBA or another graduate degree from an accredited institution.
