Students interested in a combined professional preparation in Architecture and in Business Administration may apply for admission to the Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) Dual Degree Program, offered jointly by the College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) and the Graduate School of Management (GSM). This program is designed for architects or undergraduate architectural students who aspire to middle or executive management positions in architectural practices, or who are interested in starting their own business.
Students in the M.Arch. and M.B.A. Dual Degree program must earn at least a total of 74 credit hours, 35 from the M.Arch. program and 39 from the M.B.A. program.
For the M.Arch. and M.B.A., students need to apply to CAED indicating on the application the dual degree option. Once an applicant is accepted into the M.Arch. degree program, the graduate secretary will forward the application to the College of Business Graduate School of Management (GSM) for their consideration. Each school will make an independent decision and the students will be notified in one letter of the decisions made in both programs.
