Dual M.B.A./M.S.I.E.

The Tagliatela College of Engineering has always encouraged interdisciplinary studies. To foster a broader expertise in the areas of business administration and industrial engineering, a student can earn degrees in both fields by successfully completing the dual degree program.

To address the growing demand and need for business acumen along with engineering and technical expertise in industry, UNH created the M.B.A./M.S.I.E. dual degree program. Offering 69 credits of coursework with the potential to waive up to nine credits, the program draws from 33 foundational credits in business areas like management, finance, and accounting along with 36 credits in industrial engineering topics such as operations research, quality analysis, and system simulation. Students joining the program are expected to have an undergraduate engineering or technical degree from an ABET-accredited program. Students complete separate M.B.A. and industrial engineering research projects. These projects are the culmination of the learning that took place during the coursework and are chosen with the help of program advisors. Many past research projects were based on local industry needs.

The program offers small class sizes, state-of-the-art training and laboratory facilities, and learning from highly educated practitioners with a wealth of industry experience. On a fulltime basis, students can complete the program in as little as 2-1/2 years on the University’s trimester schedule. A personal advisor is assigned to each student.
