Lawrence Tech's dual degree program is distinctively designed to enhance the opportunities for personal and professional growth of tomorrow's leaders. Qualified students in the dual degree program will take core course work in both the College of Management's MBA program and in the College of Engineering's Engineering Management program. Upon completion of the course work in both programs, a student will be awarded two master's degrees.
This dual degree program requires the student to have an undergraduate degree in engineering, science, or technology from an accredited university. Students in the dual degree program will begin by taking course work in the master's program that they designate as their primary degree. Upon completion of their core course work in their primary degree program, they will be awarded their first diploma. Upon completion of the course work in their secondary degree program, they will be awarded a second diploma.
