M.S. in Engineering / MBA

Students that hold both an MBA as well as an MS in Engineering degree set themselves apart from many when entering the competitive marketplace upon graduation. Not only can they speak the technical lingo, they can also understand the overarching strategy and operational goals while keeping in mind the managerial/leadership role. There are many ways to determine if the MS in Engineering / MBA is the right path for you: 

  • Does your job (or your prospective job) involve managing or forecasting a budget?

  • Do you want to change career paths completely? 

  • Do you want to move into a managerial (or higher) position within your existing company? Or manage your own operation? 

The University of Wyoming M.S. in Engineering / MBA dual degree can be earned in two years in any department in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Students spend one academic year (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters) in the MBA program completing the core curriculum. An additional year is spent taking M.S. Engineering courses in the chosen engineering discipline. Students successfully completing this program will earn a Master of Science in Engineering degree and a Master of Business Administration degree.

The applicant must notify both Colleges that he or she is applying for the joint MS in Engineering/MBA program, and must be admitted by each College to participate. To remain in the dual degree program, the student must comply with the minimum performance standards of both the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the College of Business as well as all graduate regulations outlined by the University of Wyoming.
