The growing importance of computer-based information systems in the business environment has produced a sustained high demand for graduates with master's degrees in business administration and undergraduate majors in computer science and engineering.
The School of Engineering & Applied Science and the John M. Olin School of Business offer a five-year program leading to the professional Bachelor of Science engineering degree and the Master of Business Administration degree. The purpose of the program is to provide you with the opportunity to develop an educational background particularly in demand by industry.
You should apply to this joint program by February 1 of your junior year. You must complete the application for admission to the John M. Olin School of Business, available through the business school. Applicants are judged on undergraduate performance, GMAT scores, summer and/or co-op work experience, recommendations, and a personal interview.
The BS/MBA student’s fourth-year curriculum comprises largely business courses. The fifth-year curriculum is divided almost evenly between business and engineering courses. Because merging of the two curricula results in very tight scheduling, it is possible that course overloads may be necessary to complete both programs in 10 semesters.
