Admission to the MA/MBA Joint Degree Program
Qualified students may simultaneously earn a master’s degree in business administration and an interdisciplinary Master of Arts in East Asian Studies. Students enrolled in the joint degree program take MBA and MA course work concurrently. Students will normally be expected to complete the program in five consecutive terms, beginning in the fall term of the first academic year and ending in the spring term of the following year. Students may, however, extend their program of study in order to pursue further language acquisition or an internship.
Prospective students must meet the full set of admission requirements for MBA study in the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and for the MA program of graduate study in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences. Students should first apply for admission to the MBA program. After admission to the MBA program, applicants to the MA program will be assessed by review panels of appropriate A&S faculty.
