The dual degree option is only available to students pursuing the M.Arch. The dual degree program permits students to obtain both an M.Arch. and a M.S. in Management in substantially less time; in some cases in only one more semester of full-time study. A maximum of 15 credits may be used to satisfy the requirements of both degrees.

Students take additional credits shown below to fulfill requirements for the M.S. in Management. There is no thesis requirement.

At the time of admission to the dual degree program, the School of Management graduate advisor will determine if any M.S. in Management course requirements can be waived.
