Graduate: Dual Masters Program

Introduction

AEDE offers Dual Masters degree programs in collaboration with Ohio State's Fisher College of Business and the John Glenn Collge of Public Affairs. The special structure of these dual degree programs allows students to earn two masters degrees in less time than it would take to earn the degrees separately.

Dual Masters of Science – Masters of Business Administration

AEDE and the Fisher College of Business collaboratively offer a dual Masters of Science – Master of Business Administration degree program. Students completing the program earn two degrees: an MS from AEDE and an MBA from the Fisher College of Business. The dual MS-MBA degree requires the student to complete a minimum of 59 credit hours, including 18-24 credit hours from AED Economics and 45 credit hours in the MBA program.

Dual Masters of Science – Masters of Public Administration

AEDE and the John Glenn College of Public Affairs collaboratively offer a dual Masters of Science – Masters of Public Administration degree program. Students completing the program earn two degrees: an MS from AEDE and an MPA from the Glenn College. The dual MS-MPA degree requires the student to complete a minimum of 67 credit hours, including 17 credit hours from AED Economics and a minimum of 50 credit hours in the MPA program.

Application

In order to participate in a Dual Masters degree program, a student must separately apply and be admitted to the AEDE MS program and either the Fisher College of Business MBA program or the Glenn College MPA program. Admission to both programs, however, need not be secured simultaneously. Students typically initially apply to one degree program and seek admission to a dual degree program after matriculating at Ohio State.
