The Rawls College of Business in association with other colleges and schools offers programs that enable students to obtain selected master’s degrees and an M.B.A. degree. These dual degrees require 12 hours fewer than if both degrees were pursued separately. Acceptance is required by both programs prior to pursuing a dual degree. The Rawls College of Business provides Microsoft Office Excel Specialist certification. This certification is required for graduation. All M.B.A. programs are lock-step; please work with the M.B.A. advisor for course scheduling.
