MBA combo platters

WSJ reports how more MBA students are combining their business courses with graduate program in another discipline.  Many schools, including NC State, allow students taking a Master of Science degree to use MBA courses as electives and vice versa.  This allows students to earn two degrees which would normally require two years apiece within a span of three years.  The article cites a number of interesting examples, including an MBA-MFA at NYU and an MBA-M.S. in environmental studies at Michigan.  NC State offers MBA dual degree opportunities in biotechnology, biomanufacturing, law (with Campbell Law School), accounting, industrial engineering, global innovation management, and veterinary medicine (doctoral).
