Weatherhead has a formal full-time dual-degree program with the School of Law. Students enrolled in the program who fulfill the requirements set for graduation by both schools will receive both a JD and an MBA degree. The MBA/JD dual-degree program is designed for individuals who want to specialize in the legal, contractual and governmental aspects of management. After completion of both degree programs, two separate diplomas are awarded. Coursework for both programs must be completed within six years of the date of initial enrollment in either program.
Weatherhead and the American Graduate School of International Management (the Thunderbird School) jointly offer a graduate-level program in both management and international studies. Prospective students who are interested in applying to the dual MBA/MGM program offered by Weatherhead and the Thunderbird School should apply separately to each school. (Applicants to Weatherhead should indicate their interest in the MBA/MGM in the appropriate area under “Intended Program” at the bottom of the first page of the Weatherhead MBA application.) The admissions committees of each institution will maintain independent control over their admissions criteria and procedures. Students must be admitted separately to each of the programs. Admission to one school does not guarantee admission to the other.
The dual MSSA/MBA degree program is offered in partnership with the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) and Weatherhead. The MSSA/MBA is designed for candidates who wish to prepare for advanced social work practice in a variety of direct practice and community practice settings/organizations, while developing the skills to assume management responsibility within those settings. Candidates must apply separately to each program.
The dual MBA/MPH degree was developed by the School of Medicine, the School of Graduate Studies and Weatherhead to provide the skills and knowledge necessary for those who wish to attain the following goals:
MBA/MPH candidates must complete separate applications, participate in the required admission tests and be admitted separately to each program. Students will continue to register throughout the program in the school where they first registered.
Weatherhead and the School of Economics and Management at Tongji University (SEM-Tongji) have jointly developed a double-degree program. This is the first master’s degree in finance offered by a world-class U.S. university in mainland China. This innovative program, taught in Shanghai and Cleveland, provides students with both broad general management skills and depth of knowledge in finance. Graduates come away with a global way of thinking and the latest insights on the Asian financial market.
Upon graduation from the program, students will obtain both the MSM-Finance degree from Weatherhead and the MBA degree from SEM-Tongji. Students take 10 SEM-Tongji MBA courses and 13 Weatherhead MSM-Finance courses.
