Merge Your Passions with an MBA and Dual Degree

For some students, it makes perfect sense to pursue two degrees simultaneously. Olin Business School and Washington University present a number of excellent options for such individuals.

Earn two business degrees at the same time—combining your MBA with a Specialized Masters program.

Under this option, you’ll complete the first summer semester with your MBA classmates before taking a mix of electives and required courses in the two programs. You’ll take classes concurrently—some courses will apply to both degrees.

The following STEM-designated specialized masters programs may be combined with the MBA:

You can also combine your MBA with specialized masters options that are not STEM-designated: Master of Accounting (typically pursued by students seeking CPA certification), MS in Corporate Finance, and MS in Wealth and Asset Management.

How to apply for a Specialized Masters dual degree

If you choose one of these dual degree options, you should not submit two applications. Rather, you should apply only to the Olin Full-Time MBA program. If you receive an admissions offer for the Full-time MBA, you may then contact OlinGradAdmissions@wustl.edu to request consideration for your desired Specialized Masters program. Specialized Masters degree programs generally have additional admission requirements.

If you are already a student in one of Olin’s Specialized Masters programs, you may contact the MBA Admissions Office to discuss the pursuit of the combined degree option.

Combine your MBA with a dual degree from another WashU graduate school.

WashU dual degree students will complete some semesters at Olin and some at the other WashU School. Combine your MBA with any of the following:

How to apply for a WashU dual degree

These dual degree programs require a separate application to each of the Schools and are reviewed independently by two Admissions Committees. Submit your applications simultaneously, or, if you have already enrolled at one of our WashU partner programs, you may submit your Olin application prior to the start of your last year in the other program.

Combine your WashU undergraduate degree with an MBA.
