Stanford To Offer Joint Computer Science MS/MBA Degree Program

Stanford

For the first time, a joint Stanford Computer Science MS/MBA degree program will be available to graduate students in the 2014-2015 academic year.

The joint program structure will allow students to complete the two degrees in three years, instead of the usual four years needed to complete each one separately.

Students wishing to undertake the joint program must separately apply to and be accepted by both the Stanford Graduate School of Business MBA Program and the School of Engineering’s Computer Science MS program.

Completion of the joint program requires a combined total of 129 units, including 84 units at Stanford GSB and 45 units in the Computer Science department.

Students may apply for admission starting this fall.
