KU School of Business currently offers four dual degree programs, which allow you to earn your MBA full time while specializing in a second discipline. Students interested in these programs must apply to both the School of Business and the other applicable school. Classes for dual degrees are held at the Lawrence campus.
Contact KU MBA if you have questions regarding the dual degree programs.
