Inside Look Into Global MBA/Bachelor’s in Engineering

Program Features

Students pursuing this program begin with their bachelor’s degree courses at the Whiting School of Engineering during years one through three. In year four, students will be fully immersed in the Carey Business School’s full-time Global MBA program and will then complete a summer internship. Year five will cover the remaining course work for degrees at both schools. The five-year time frame for the completion of two degrees offers students a substantial savings of time and money over pursuing the degrees separately.

This program is offered through the Whiting School of Engineering and the Carey Business School. Each graduate will receive two degrees, one from each school.

Sample Curriculum

With the dual-program structure, students will be able to complete both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in less time than it would take to complete the degrees as separate programs.

The Global MBA program requires 54 credits encompassing all aspects of business knowledge and skills in an innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum. Engineering students must apply to the GMBA in year three of their engineering degree studies. GMBA courses will be taken during year four.

During the fifth year, students will complete all the requirements for both their undergraduate and MBA degrees. Much of the remaining course work for the GMBA program may be completed in the evening, allowing for daytime attendance at WSE. The fifth-year elective courses offer students the opportunity to specialize in industry-focused areas, such as Enterprise Risk Management and Entrepreneurship.

Under the Weather

The summer of 2017 witnessed a record-setting hurricane season. In a matter of weeks, Hurricane Harvey swamped Houston, Texas, with rainfall of Biblical proportions while two other monster storms — Irma and Maria — clobbered the Caribbean islands and the Florida peninsula. The U.S. territory of Puerto Rico appeared especially hard hit. The devastation has wrought social, political, and economic turmoil and left the United States to wonder what can be done to better prepare for the next disaster. Against that backdrop, Carey Business magazine sat down with five experts from the Carey School's faculty to explore how society might apply the lessons of business and economics to the threat of natural disasters — disasters that seem likely to increase in number and strength in coming years.
