Graduate and Professional Programs

Joint Degrees

The Bauer College of Business offers a number of joint master's degree programs, which may be pursued on a part- or full-time basis. Programs at the University of Houston that may be combined with the Master of Business Administration include the following:

The Master of Business Administration may be also combined with the Master of Global Management (MBA/MGM) offered through the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, Arizona. The MBA/MGM dual degree program requires that students spend at least a year studying at Thunderbird. Typically students complete the UH portion of their degree requirements first, and then go to Arizona to fulfill the requirements for the MGM degree.

For all of these joint degree programs, it is necessary to apply separately and meet admissions requirements for both programs. (For example, MBA/JD applicants must take both the GMAT or GRE and the LSAT tests.) Once students have been admitted to the first graduate program, they must gain admission to the other within one calendar year. The MBA program will allow 12 hours of MBA electives to be filled by courses from the other program. Students will receive two diplomas, and must file for graduation with both degrees in the same semester.
