Our MSE+MBA Engineering Program
The online dual degree program is designed for engineers looking to advance their knowledge in the engineering field, while at the same time develop the kind of business and management skills that will open up new doors of professional opportunity. Offered in partnership with the top-ranking Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, the program is delivered in three segments: technical/engineering, bridge courses, and MBA courses. You'll learn from the same renowned faculty who teach on campus at Purdue and Indiana University, and graduate with both an MSE and an MBA.
Our Dual-Degree Engineering+MBA Curriculum
The curriculum has been carefully designed and is delivered through streaming video and downloadable MPEG-4 files at times and locations convenient for you. You'll start with select courses in an engineering specialization based on your goals, as well as courses in economics, IT, operations, and quantitative analysis. After completing the Purdue engineering degree requirements (30-credit hours), you'll transition into the MBA portion with courses in:
|Accounting for Decision-Making||Financial Management|
|Globalization||Law and Ethics|
|Organizational Development and Change||Planning|
|Project Management||Strategic Marketing|
|Strategy Development||Team-Based Management|
Please note your MBA degree will be a General Management MBA with a well-rounded curriculum across each core area of business. Students will have access to network with each other during the Kelley Immersion experience.
Our Dual Degree MSE-MBA program will give you the necessary tools to advance your career in a way that makes sense in today's competitive, high-tech global economy. With this dual program, students complete the requirements for both degrees in 60 credit hours. This streamlined process saves valuable resources in the time and money spent to earn each master's degree.
Details on Cost
Please note we do not list "total" cost of attendance as your tuition bill is based on how many classes you take in a given term, and most online learners start out taking one course a term.
The current cost for the Purdue courses is located here. The cost for the IU management courses is roughly $3500 per 3-credit hour course. These numbers may fluctuate over time.
Completing each of these degrees separately would result in more than 80 credit hours of academic study and costs nearing $100,000.
