MSEM/MBA Dual Degree

The M.S. Environmental Management/MBA dual degree program is designed for students interested in developing both business management skills and environmental management skills.

Awarded by the USF College of Arts and Sciences and the USF School of Management, the Environmental Management/MBA program provides a cost and time savings of up to 12 units. Students may begin either program first or begin the programs concurrently.  Separate admission to each school is required. Students choose to apply to the MSEM program first, the MBA program first, or apply to both MSEM and MBA programs concurrently in order to begin in the same semester. Applicants must submit all required application materials for both programs, including GMAT for MBA.
