IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT A NEW COMBINED DEGREE PROGRAM (a bachelors degree and
the MSM degree). The Warrington College of Business has decided to make the
MSM program available to undergraduate students via a "4/1" option. This
option allows students to count up to twelve credits of graduate work taken
as an undergraduate towards a master's degree. The College plans to
accommodate up to 40 students in the Fall of 2003 and 80 students in the
Fall of 2004.
The model to "double count" up to twelve credits is as follows:
4/1 MSM Model
Junior Year (spring): Apply to the MSM Program and complete GMAT by 1 June
Senior Year (fall): ECP 5702 Managerial Economics (2 credits in module 1)
Senior Year (spring): ECO 5715 Open Economy Macro (2 credits in module 3)
Senior Year (summer A): European Study Tour (2 credits)
Senior Year (summer B, 6 credits):
- GEB 5215 Professional Writing/ Communication (2 credits)
- MAN 6636 Global Strategic Management (2 credits)
- BUL 5811 Managers and the Legal Environment (2 credits)
Graduate Year (fall module 1, 5 credits):
- ACG 5005 Financial Accounting (2 credits)
- MAR 5620 Introduction to Managerial Statistics (2 credits)
- MAN 5265 Groups & Teams (1 credit)
Future of Dual Undergraduate Degrees
In the Fall of 2003, the College will no longer allow students to declare a
secondary undergraduate degree in business. For example, an undergraduate
in political science will no longer be allowed to pursue a secondary
bachelor's degree in business. Instead, students who wish to study business
as a secondary focus will be advised to pursue a minor in business and/or
the MSM Program.
(For students in Liberal Arts majors, for example, this combined degree
program is an excellent way to graduate in five years with an undergraduate
degree and an MSM! That ought to be a winning combination job-wise. Some
students may be able to do it in four!)
