UC Berkeley’s new integrated MBA/MEng program, which will enroll its inaugural class in fall 2020, is designed to prepare students to become leaders in technological innovation in an array of different industries. It enables students to earn two master's degrees in the time it takes to complete just one, and at a lower cost than enrolling in each program separately. Applicants who have a technical undergraduate education can earn in four semesters a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the Haas School of Business and a Master of Engineering (MEng) degree in one of seven departments at the College of Engineering, programs that are ranked among the highest in the world.
The concurrent degree program is designed to help address the need in the high-tech industry for leaders who possess both technical skills and business acumen. Academic excellence combined with the innovation culture of the San Francisco Bay Area makes UC Berkeley the perfect place to prepare graduates from this selective program to be leaders in technological innovation and entrepreneurship.
Students will take both business and engineering courses, and they will participate in courses and interdisciplinary projects designed especially for the concurrent program. A list of the course requirements for the MBA/MEng program is online. Employment opportunities abound, from Silicon Valley to Wall Street to locations around the world.
Prospective students may submit applications during Round I (due Thursday, September 26, 2019) or Round II (due Thursday, January 9, 2020) of the MBA application cycle.
