>>Concurrent Degrees

Concurrent degree programs allow students to earn an MBA plus another UCLA graduate degree in a combined track, providing the opportunity to develop theoretical and practical knowledge in another program simultaneously with your MBA studies.

UCLA Anderson offers 10 concurrent degree programs with the full-time MBA:

Computer Science: MBA/MSCS
Dentistry: MBA/DDS
Latin American Studies: MBA/MLAS 
Law: MBA/JD
Library & Information Science: MBA/MLIS 
Medicine: MBA/MD
Nursing: MBA/MSN (note: this program is not admitting students for Fall 2015)
Public Health: MBA/MPH
Public Policy: MBA/MPP
Urban Planning: MBA/MURP

Applicants must submit separate application materials to each program, following the instructions set forth on each program's website.  Admissions decisions for concurrent degree programs are made separately by each department, and you must be admitted to both programs to be considered a concurrent degree student.  

For admission to the MBA program, concurrent degree applicants are evaluated as part of the entire MBA applicant pool, and a student already enrolled in one program is not automatically guaranteed admission to the other program.

For more information on the MBA program application, please see the Application Requirements section of our website.

Please contact Jessica Chung, Associate Director of MBA Admissions, at jessica.chung@anderson.ucla.edu for any questions on concurrent degree programs.  Contact information for other UCLA graduate departments are listed below.
