Student Life as a Dual Degree MBA Student

While you’re earning the MBA/MSBA Dual Degree and advancing your career, you’ll still have time to get the full Notre Dame student experience.

What You’ll Learn: MBA/MSBA Course of Study

The first year in the dual-degree program focuses primarily on MBA core courses, including a solid introduction to business analytics in the spring, to provide a foundation for your internship experience.

In the second year, you complete MSBA and MBA required courses — such as Data Storytelling, Machine Learning and Spreadsheet Decision Modeling — and select from a wide range of elective offerings to suit your career objectives.

Each of your four semesters consists of two 7-week modules, separated by a one-week interterm intensive focused on developing and applying your analytics skills. In four semesters, with 68 credits, you’ll earn two degrees and discover everything you’ve ever wanted to know about business and analytics.
