To allow students to better exploit the strong complementary nature between business and economics, the Carey Business School and the Johns Hopkins Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences Applied Economics Program have eliminated the overlap between the MS in Applied Economics and the MBA. This enables students to earn both the MS degree and the MBA for fewer courses than if pursued separately.
Apply to the MBA/MS in Applied Economics through the Johns Hopkins Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. For more information, please visit advanced.jhu.edu/academics/dual-degree-programs/applied-economicsmba.
The program requires 66 credits, 42 credits (24 credits Flex MBA Business Foundation and 18 credits of electives) for the MBA. Course scheduling allows for completion of the MBA portion of the program in 30 months. Students must complete the MBA portion within six years. A waived course must be replaced with an equivalent number of credits in an advanced course. Dual degree recipients receive both diplomas upon completion of both programs.
Dual degree recipients receive both diplomas upon completion of both programs. Course requirements, which can be pursued simultaneously at both schools, are:
