M.B.A./M.S. in Nursing
A joint M.B.A. / M.S. program is offered in conjunction with the University of Maryland School of Nursing to students seeking advanced preparation in business administration and nursing administration. The 66-credit curriculum combines elements of the M.B.A. and M.S. programs and can be completed in two years of full-time study.
Students may apply to both programs concurrently or they may apply first to the nursing program and later to the business program when it is appropriate to begin joint-degree coursework. Individuals must meet each school’s admission requirements. Starting on the first day of matriculation, a maximum of seven years is allowed for the completion of the joint program.
The M.B.A. program requires completion of 19 credits in business fundamentals, 24 credits in the integrated core and 9 credits of electives.
If you are currently a student in the program and have questions, please contact your academic advisor.
