Earn an Ivy College of Business master’s degree at the same time you complete another master’s degree through our double degree programs. A double graduate degree from the Ivy College of Business provides options for combining the comprehensive management education of the MBA with a specialized study in another master’s degree program, or combining two specialty master’s degrees. Many courses count for both degrees, saving you time and money.

The Ivy College of Business currently offers the following double degree programs.

  • Steps to earning a double degree

    1. Once admitted to your primary program, please contact busgrad@iastate.edu for double degree admission next steps.

    Note: New, incoming students should wait to apply for the double degree until their first term has started.

    Note: If your first graduate program is not in the Ivy College of Business, you will also need to submit a resume and transcripts with your application.

    2. Once approved for a double degree, fill out the Double Degree Program of Study form and submit to your director of graduate education (DOGE).

    Note: Double degree students will not submit an electronic program of study (POS) through AccessPlus.

    3. When you are in your last semester of coursework, apply for graduation through AccessPlus.

    Notes for applicants

    Once all required application materials have been submitted, you will be contacted within two weeks regarding your status.
