Graduate part of the Joint MPP/MBA Accelerated Degree Program
Students who have completed eight MPP/MBA courses as part of their undergraduate degree would earn the MPP/MBA in four semesters of full-time graduate study (15 courses; 45 credits). Students who have completed all eleven courses at the undergraduate level would need twelve additional courses (39 credits) of graduate study, which can be completed in two semesters of full-time study and two semesters of part-time study.
Students who have completed fewer than eight of the MPP/MBA requirements as part of their undergraduate degree could pursue the MPP/MBA by taking more courses as part of the graduate program, which may extend the length of their graduate study.
