Diplomacy and International Relations Major Dual Degree M.B.A./M.A.
The School of Diplomacy and International Relations participates in graduate dual degree programs with the Seton Hall School of Law, the Stillman School of Business, the Department of Public Administration and the Program in Strategic Communications. Each program has its own admission process. Applicants for a dual degree program must be accepted separately to each program, either at the time of initial enrollment or during the first semester.
Once enrolled, students should consult with academic advisers in both programs to coordinate their curriculum. Dual degree course requirements for each program are listed below.
The School of Diplomacy and the Stillman School of Business offer a dual degree program that combines the Master in Business Administration (M.B.A.) with the Master of Arts (M.A.) in Diplomacy and International Relations. The dual degree program takes advantage of the synergy between the two fields to offer a program that provides a unique combination of detailed business training with a thorough understanding of international policy issues. Students apply independently to each program, either at the time of initial application or during the first semester of either program. For further information, please contact the School of Diplomacy or the School of Business.
Note: Dual degree students do not take BMBA 9452 International Perspective or BMBA 9461 Business Consulting. Dual degree students write a Master’s Research Project under the guidance of both their Business and Diplomacy advisers.
Students can take any elective course as soon as the respective foundation course for the elective course is completed. Students choose from the following: Accounting, Finance, IT Management, International Business Management, Marketing, Sport Management, Supply Change Management.
Students who wish to obtain a specialization may take 12 elective credits (15 for Accounting) from the same discipline (an additional 2 credits beyond what is required). This will result in the student completing 32 total credits (35 for Accounting).
