Concurrent degrees

Combine your W. P. Carey MBA with another degree in less time and for less expense than earning them separately. Through partnerships with well-respected schools across ASU, you can bolster your MBA with expertise in another field of study, highlighting existing strengths in your resume or developing new proficiencies to advance your career.

Maximize your time in graduate school and elevate the value of your top-ranked MBA. Combine the W. P. Carey Online MBA with degrees from ASU’s highly ranked Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law or the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

    Combining advanced courses in electrical engineering with a rigorous management curriculum, the MBA/MSE concurrent degree is unique among online MBA programs. You emerge with two degrees from highly regarded schools in their respective fields: the W. P. Carey MBA and the Master of Science in engineering with a concentration in electrical engineering from the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

    A concurrent degree can be earned in a shorter period of time and at a lower cost than if the two degrees were pursued separately. Offered online, the MBA/MS concurrent degree requires 57 credit hours of study including 11 courses from the MBA and 8 courses from the MSE program (note that some MSE courses are 4 credits, meaning that 57 credits is the minimum credit requirement).

    Concurrent degrees are only available to students beginning the Online program in August.
