MBA/MEng admissions

Deadlines for MBA/MEng match the MBA application cycle:
Round I: Applications due September 26, 2019
Round II: Applications due January 9, 2020

Standardized Exams:  The MBA/MEng concurrent program requires either GMAT or GRE scores. 
TOEFL/IELTS score is required for:

  • Individuals who received college degrees from a country in which the official language is not English, regardless of the language of instruction; and
  • U.S. citizens and permanent residents who received their undergraduate degrees from a country in which the official language is not English.

Prerequisites: 

  • The Haas School of Business requires a minimum of two years of full-time work experience for admission to the MBA and the concurrent MBA/MEng program. 
  • Applicants should have completed undergraduate coursework that will enable them to be successful in master’s level courses in their chosen engineering department. Depending upon the applicant’s intended major, an engineering degree may not be required. For example, in Mechanical Engineering, an undergraduate degree in Physics may be suitable. In Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and Industrial Engineering & Operations Research, an undergraduate degree in Mathematics with some coursework in computer programming may be suitable.

How will the business school and selected engineering department decide on my admission?
Applicants will be considered for admission to both departments and a combined committee will make decisions on admission to the concurrent program. Applicants who are admitted to only one of the two programs may enroll in that program.

Does the program accept international students?
Yes, international applicants are welcome.

May I apply to more than one engineering department?
You may apply to the concurrent program associated with only one engineering department. Please choose the department whose program is the best fit for your interests and career goals.

What are the program fees?
Tuition and fees are estimated to be $170,000 for the two-year program entering fall 2020, and are subject to change. Students may apply for financial aid through federal, private or international loans, and may also apply for scholarships and grants through both the MBA and MEng programs. 

Is financial aid available?
Students admitted to the concurrent program are eligible for financial aid (grants and loans) and scholarships through both the MBA and MEng programs, and are eligible for teaching assistant positions (that typically include a partial tuition waiver). All admitted students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships and may apply to additional scholarships as outlined on the Haas financial aid website

To be considered for the MEng Opportunity Grant, fill out the College of Engineering Grant Application section within the online application completely. More information is available under Tuition & Financial Aid. See also Information on Federal, Private and International Loans.
