MSF/MBA—Full-Time Program

Students may be admitted to the MSF/MBA program at the point of their initial enrollment in the D'Amore-McKim School of Business or may petition to change into the MSF/MBA program from either the MBA or the MSF programs. The MSF/MBA program requires 72 credits vs.90 to earn the two degrees separately (MBA requires 60 credits, MSF requires 30 credits). Once either the MBA or the MSF has been awarded, it is not possible to apply for the joint degree.

The MSF/MBA program requirement of 72 credits consists of all the required courses in the full-time MBA program or the part-time MBA program, four of the six required courses in the MSF program, and electives.

Students may receive waiver and/or transfer credit of up to 20 credits (transfer credit is limited to 9 credits).  A grade-point average of 3.000 is required for graduation.
