MBA/MA Political Science

Interested in both business and political science/international affairs? Marquette University’s Graduate School of Management, in conjunction with the Graduate School, offers a program of joint study leading to an MBA degree and an MA degree in either political science or international affairs. Students seeking admission to the joint program must apply separately to both the Graduate School of Management and the Graduate School and must meet the admission requirements for each.

Efficiencies are built into the program to maximize the student’s time and energy while providing thorough coverage in each area. The Graduate School of Management will accept a maximum of 9 approved political science or international affairs credits toward MBA requirements. The Graduate School will accept a maximum of 9 MBA credits toward the MA. Students work with both programs to meet degree requirements. A maximum of 18 credits is double counted between the two degrees which saves the student about a year of coursework and tuition.

Students will be assigned an advisor in each program, and it is recommended that the student meet with each advisor prior to registration each semester.
