Dual Degree MSE/MS+MBA

This online dual MSE/MS+MBA degree is a partnership between Purdue University and Indiana University's Kelley School of Business.  This program allows you to earn two degrees in a total of 60 credit hours, compared to 81 credit hours if you earned each degree separately.  Applicants to this dual degree program will undergo a streamlined admissions process to the two separate degree programs, managed through Purdue.
