Seton Hall's Stillman School of Business offers a dual degree program that combines the Master of Business Administration with a Master of Science in International Business (M.B.A/M.S.I.B.). The joint degree takes advantage of the synergy in the goals of the two programs, preparing professionals equipped to respond to the challenges of the global environment. The joint degree can be completed in 63 or 66 credits, depending on the concentration chosen for the M.B.A portion, instead of the 75 credits that would be required to complete the two programs separately.
The M.B.A. curriculum is designed to provide a strong foundation in accounting, economics, the behavioral and quantitative sciences, and the functional areas of business. The pre-qualifiers and Hubs 1-4 provide the base from which each student can select a specialization.
Currently, specializations for the joint program include Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, Sports Management, Financial Institutions, and Pharmaceutical Operations. Students are required to complete 12 credits in their chosen specialization (15 credits in accounting).
The M.S.I.B. is a specialized interdisciplinary degree program that prepares business professionals to successfully handle global strategic management issues. The program trains global managers to succeed in the dynamic global marketplace and to serve as leaders for such globally focused institutions as multinational corporations, business organizations that seek to take advantage of international opportunities, international organizations with an economic/ business profile, or economic divisions of international organizations.
