Harvard Launches MBA / Master of Science Dual Degree

Program allows students to combine Harvard's MBA with a Master of Science in Engineering Degree

Harvard Business School has announced plans to launch a dual-degree MBA / Master of Science in Engineering joint degree program.

The program will combine Harvard's MBA with an MS in Engineering degree through the university's John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

The new MBA / MS program will take two years to complete. During the first year of the program, students will take Harvard's core MBA curriculum, plus a Systems Engineering course. In the second year, students will take electives at each school. 

To apply for the program, prospective candidates should have an undergraduate degree in engineering, computer science, or a related field, plus two years of work experience, ideally in designing and/or developing technology-intensive products.

The first intake of Harvard's MBA / MS program will begin in August 2018. 

Harvard offers a number of other dual-degree MBA programs, including a JD / MBA, an MD / MBA, and a MBA / Master of Public Policy, among others.

For more information, please see Harvard's news release announcing the launch of the MBA / MS program.
