Darden and Johns Hopkins Launch New Dual Degree Program

Program combines a Darden MBA and a Johns Hopkins SAIS Master of Arts

The University of Virginia's Darden School of Business has teamed up with Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) to offer a new dual degree program.

The new program will allow students to pursue a Darden MBA and a Johns Hopkins SAIS Master of Arts simultaneously. The two degrees will take three years to complete, instead of the four years it would take to earn them separately.

The Johns Hopkins SAIS Master of Arts program focuses on topics such as international economics, policy and regional studies, international relations, and languages. 

The sequence of the new MBA / Master of Arts program is flexible. The first year can be spent either at Darden or at Johns Hopkins; while the second year will be spent at the other school. In the third year, students will spend a semester at each school. Students can also choose to spend three consecutive semesters at Darden, followed by three semesters at SAIS. 

The SAIS components can be completed either in Washington, DC, or in Bologna, Italy, or a combination of the two.

For more information, please see the Darden news release announcing the launch of the MBA / Master in Arts.
