The dual degree in MBA and MS Accountancy allows four “overlap courses” to be applied simultaneously to each degree program. Double-counting the four courses allows the requirements of each individual degree program to be satisfied.
For the purpose of the dual degree, students must choose two elective courses that are not in the accounting area of emphasis in the MBA program.
MBA/MS in Accountancy Degrees
Separate MBA and MS in Accountancy degrees are conferred and can be conferred at different times. The first degree may be conferred when all the requirements of that degree are satisfied.
The Seven-Year Rule will be interpreted as applying to the coursework used to satisfy the requirements of each degree separately. Thus, if the total time to complete both degrees exceeds 7 years, the timing of the over-lap courses is critical.
Degree Residency Credits
Traditionally, the determination of degree residency credits for a specific degree involves counting Edgewood College credits that apply only to that degree. The dual degree program would require the overlap courses also be double counted to fulfill the individual resident requirements of both the MBA and MS in Accountancy programs.
