Stanford to Offer a Joint MBA/MS in Electrical Engineering

Program can be completed in three years

Beginning in 2015, Stanford will offer a new joint degree program, where students can pursue both an MBA and an MS in Electrical Engineering simultaneously.

According to the school, the new joint-degree program intends to help bridge the gap between business and technology.

"The joint focus recognizes that the students we educate need and want an integrated understanding of engineering, strategy and execution as they drive future innovations that increasingly involve both technology and business,” according to Madhav Rajan, the faculty director of the MBA Program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. 

The joint degrees can be completed in three years, which is less than the four years it would take to complete the programs separately.

Interested candidates will have to apply to and be accepted into both programs separately. To be admitted to the MS in Electrical Engineering, students have to have an undergraduate degree in engineering or another quantitative subject, such as physics or mathematics.

The deadline for applying to the MS in Electrical Engineering program is December 9th, 2014. Application deadlines for the MBA program are staged in rounds, between October 2014 and April 2015.

By coupling an MBA with a more technical MS degree, graduates would be prepared for a range of positions, from leadership positions at research institutions to managing the development of new technologies and innovations.

With the new dual-degree program, Stanford's Graduate School of Business brings its total joint degree offerings up to six. The school also allows students to pair their MBA with a JD, a Master of Science in Environment and Resources, a Master of Arts in Education, a Master of Public Policy, or an MS in Computer Science.

Other US-based schools that offer dual-degree MBA/MS in Electrical Engineering programs include MIT - Sloan, the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, ASU - Carey, and the University of Texas at Dallas.
