Program Description

Business Administration/Human Resource Management dual degree (M.B.A./M.A.)

Marymount University

Business Administration/Human Resource Management dual degree (M.B.A./M.A.)

Many students interested in graduate study in human resources are aware of the fact that broader business issues – economics, finance, and marketing – are driving many business decisions. In addition, many M.B.A. students recognize the advantages of an industry-specific degree. In response, Marymount offers a dual degree: the Master of Business Administration and Master of Arts in Human Resource Management.


This dual degree program will prepare students for managing responsibilities in HR departments while enabling them to participate effectively in companywide discussions of broader strategic issues. These degrees will prepare students for executive-level responsibilities in human resource departments by better enabling them to understand the business context within which human resource decisions are made. Graduates will be able to:

  • Identify and solve complex human resource problems using integrative business knowledge
  • Resolve ethical human resource issues
  • Effectively communicate and work with others

This dual degree can be completed within 57 credit hours. Classes are available at both MU’s Ballston Center and Reston Center. Consult with an advisor about structuring your program of study.


Admission Requirements: Individuals interested in this dual degree program are encouraged to enroll in it when first applying to the University. However, students can elect to enroll in the dual program after they have already begun their studies in either the M.B.A. or M.A. in Human Resource Management. The Office of Graduate Admissions will assist students with application procedures.


Minimum Grade Requirements: For students in dual degree programs, the minimum grade requirement for each degree remains in effect. For students in the Business Administration/Human Resource Management dual degree program, all course requirements drawn from the M.A. in Human Resource Management must be completed with a B- or better. Courses drawn from the M.B.A. program must be completed with a C or better.
