Application Requirements for the Joint MA/MBA Program

The joint MA Education/MBA program allows students to simultaneously pursue a MA at the Graduate School of Education (GSE) and a MBA at the Graduate School of Business (GSB). The program is a rigorous, two-year full-time program that integrates a comprehensive set of MBA classes with Education coursework, resulting in a personalized, world-class educational management curriculum.

Application Requirements

The application to the Joint MA/MBA program originates at the GSB MBA Admissions Office*. When applying to the MBA program, check off that you are interested in the Joint MA in Education/MBA program, and you will be prompted to complete an additional essay. For more information on the application process, including application deadlines please visit the MBA admissions office.

*Alternatively, current MBA1 students seeking admission to the MA/MBA program during their first quarter can use the following application directly. The application deadline is included in the form. Late applications will not be accepted.

Our leadership degree programs—the joint MA/MBA program and POLS—will prepare you to be effective participants, leaders, and agents of change. Both programs will equip you with the tools you need to become an effective leader in education, but the programs do have some significant differences.
