AACSB Accredited

Dual MSAT/MBA Degree

Barney School of Business

Students who wish to earn both the Master of Science in Accounting and Taxation degree (MSAT) and the Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) may apply to be admitted to the Dual MSAT/MBA degree program. Upon completion of all degree requirements, students will be awarded both the MSAT and MBA degrees. Students must apply to each program separately and meet the admission criteria for each program. Students then complete the degree requirements in the usual manner, with the exception of the number of electives and certain prerequisite overlap.

A student who meets all the accounting prerequisites and is waived from the MBA core classes can complete the dual degree with 54 credit hours. Students who need to complete the accounting prerequisites and/or the MBA core classes will add them to their program. With more employers requesting that students have both financial and management background, the Dual MSAT/MBA degree provides an opportunity to earn both degrees in an efficient manner.

Students should refer to the bulletin descriptions for the individual MSAT and MBA programs, adapted as follows:
