College of Business MBA Program - Dual Degrees

MBA Dual Degrees

The University of Wyoming Full-Time MBA program offers three (3) dual degree alternatives for students interested in enhancing their primary track with a MBA.  These multidisciplinary graduate programs provide engineering, law, and pharmacy students with a complementary business degree to start their own business or to advance into management positions during their careers.  We provide our students with management and leadership decision-making skills that will allow them to excel in their chosen graduate field of study or with any other opportunities that may interest them.  Dual degree students will diversify their graduate experience working side-by-side with business, law, pharmacy, and engineering students with varying backgrounds and experience.  This is the program to be in if you enjoy solving unstructured problems!

M.S. in Engineering / MBA

The M.S. in Engineering / MBA can be earned in any department in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and takes about 2 years to complete.  Students spend their first year (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters) in the MBA program taking core courses and completing a summer experiential project in the engineering field (30 credits).  The second year is spent taking M.S. engineering courses (21 credits) in your chosen engineering discipline and the MBA Capstone course (3 credits).  Students completing this program will earn a Master of Science in Engineering degree and a Master of Business Administration degree.

Doctor of Pharmacy / MBA

The Doctor of Pharmacy / MBA will take five years to complete – 4 years of Pharmacy studies and one year of MBA core courses.  Students spend their first year (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters) in the MBA program taking core courses and completing a summer experiential project (30 credits).  The next four years will encompass the traditional Pharm. D. curriculum, including the MBA Capstone course in Year 2. Students completing this program will earn a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and a Master of Business Administration degree.

J.D. / MBA

The University of Wyoming JD / MBA degree program will take approximately four years to complete.  Students spend their first, third, and fourth years on-campus engaged in law studies.  In their second year, students will be enrolled full-time in the MBA Program, taking core Fall and Spring business courses followed by participation in an MBA Summer Project. The MBA Capstone course will be completed during the student’s third year for a total of 38 MBA Program credits.  Nine (9) credit hours of approved Law coursework will be transferred as elective hours to the MBA Program for a total of 47 credit hours. Students successfully completing this lock-step program will earn dual Juris Doctor and Masters of Business Administration degrees.

The applicant must notify both Colleges that he or she is applying for the joint JD/MBA program, and must be admitted by each College to participate.  To remain in the joint program, the student must comply with the minimum performance standards of both the College of Law and Business.

The GMAT or GRE is not required for JD/MBA applicants demonstrating strong quantitative ability and preparedness for the mathematical rigors of the MBA program through their LSAT, prior coursework, professional experience, and/or certifications. If an applicant is uncertain their background demonstrates the level of quantitative ability required to be successful in the MBA program, they may take the GMAT or GRE by the application deadline.

"I chose to pursue an MBA with my PharmD because I feel like business knowledge is something that will be helpful in any field. I think that everyone should learn what we are learning in the MBA program before they begin their careers." ~Steven Schoeber, MBA/PharmD candidate
