Joint MS SEM/MBA Program

If you are a professional looking to add a broader business perspective to the SEM Master’s program then The University of Texas at Dallas wants to introduce you to its Joint MS/MBA program in SEM. This 63-65 credit hour program (excluding pre-requisites) will provide you with the opportunity to learn from world-class faculty.This opportunity places you at the forefront in the fields of systems engineering management and business leadership.

The Naveen Jindal School of Management and the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science offer a Joint Executive MS SEM and MBA program because today’s experienced graduate students — seasoned by three or more years as workforce professionals — often seek a more comprehensive education in technical skills as well as broad-based business-leadership capabilities for the global economy. The joint-degree option provides both deep knowledge in SEM, as well as a broad knowledge of all areas of management with an enhanced worldwide perspective of business leadership for increasing productivity, efficiency and profitability.

The Joint MS/MBA program allows students to earn a combination of an MS SEM degree and a MBA degree. Separately, each degree would require 36 (MS) + 53 (MBA) credit hours, or 89 credit hours total. But in the joint program students can earn both degrees with a smaller total of 63 to 65 semester credit hours.
