Barney School of Business

Dual MBA/MEng

This partnership between the Barney School of Business and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) provides a broader focus for engineers moving into management and leadership tracks. The program requires a total of 60 credits – that’s 6 fewer credits than if you pursued the degrees separately.

About the Program

Earn both a Master of Business Administration (MBA)and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) at the same time. This program, the first of its kind in Connecticut, is open to full- and part-time graduate students.

Coursework includes applied projects, such as formulating marketing and business plans for area companies.


You will complete all coursework in both the Barney School and CETA in order to obtain the degrees. The degrees are not awarded separately, even if the coursework of one of the schools is completed before the other.
