The GW School of Business (GWSB) coordinates dual degree programs between the GWSB master’s degree programs listed below and most bachelor of arts or bachelor of science majors in GWSB or in Columbian College of Arts and Sciences (CCAS), Elliott School of International Affairs (ESIA), School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), or Milken Institute School of Public Health (GWSPH). Program combinations within GWSB that are not available as dual programs are listed below.

For dual programs that include a 30-credit master's degree, up to 6 credits may be shared between the two programs; for 33-credit or 36-credit master’s degrees, up to 9 credits may be shared. Undergraduate students must complete all prerequisites for their chosen master’s before beginning the graduate program. All requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled.

Students interested in the dual degree program should confer with the relevant GWSB department’s graduate advisor early in their junior year. Visit the program website for additional information.
