Program Formats and Guidelines:
The student must complete all B.S. in economics undergraduate requirements with the exception that up to 9 credit hours of 600 or 700 level professional electives taken for graduate credit can also count toward his/her undergraduate degree requirements.
The student must complete all the requirements of the M.B.A. program.
Once an individual is admitted to the concurrent B.S. Economics/M.B.A. degree program, the student should consult the graduate handbook for policies and procedures for graduate degrees, which include: supervisory committee, final examination, thesis defense, etc. The student’s supervisory committee must approve the program of study, which is that student’s graduation requirements for the M.B.A.
Once a student has completed all of the graduation requirements, he/she will graduate with both a B.S. in Economics and an M.B.A. degree in the same semester. Note: These are two separate degrees and it is not one degree.
In the event that a student begins this program, but does not wish to finish it, he/she must change the nine credit hours of his/her graduate classes to undergraduate credit and then he/she will receive a B.S. in economics degree.
The degree requires continuous enrollment. If a student fails to enroll in classes for over a year, then student has lost the ability to count courses toward both his/her undergraduate and graduate degree requirements unless granted permission by the respective departments.
