Dual Degree Programs
Dual degree programs integrate two graduate level degrees from two schools--an MA degree from the Josef Korbel School and an MA in business, law or social work-in a reduced amount of time. Applicants must apply and gain acceptance to both schools for dual degree status. The following dual degree programs are offered through the Josef Korbel School:
Global Finance, Trade & Economic Integration & International Master's of Business Administration
If you're pursuing a career in corporate or investment management, accounting or marketing, consider the dual MA in Global Finance, Trade and Economic Integration from the Josef Korbel School, one of the world's leading schools for the study of international affairs, and an IMBA program from the Daniels College of Business, one of the nation's top-ranked business schools. This program requires three years of full time study. To be eligible, applicants must be accepted to both the Josef Korbel School and the Daniels College of Business.
