Master of Architecture + Master of Business Administration Dual-Degree

Weitzman School students in the Master of Architecture program have the option of simultaneously completing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the Wharton School. Applicants to M.Arch/MBA dual-degree program apply separately to the Weitzman School and the MBA program of the Wharton School. Admission decisions are made independently by each school, and students may pursue a dual degree program only if admitted to both Weitzman and Wharton. Students already enrolled in the Weitzman School may apply to the Wharton School in the fall semester of their first year. To satisfy the Weitzman School portion of the dual-degree program, students must take at least 25 course units in architecture. To satisfy the MBA portion of the dual-degree program, students must take at least 15 course units at the Wharton School. It is Wharton policy that courses taken at Wharton prior to admission may not be applied toward the degree requirements of the MBA program. Dual degree students do one entire year at Weitzman School, followed by one entire year at the Wharton School. The last two years of the dual-degree are a combination of Weitzman and Wharton courses.
