Weitzman students in the Master of City Planning have the option of simultaneously completing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) at the Wharton School. Applicants to the dual-degree program apply separately to the Weitzman School and to 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 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 least 15 course units in city planning. 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 third year of the dual-degree is a combination of City Planning and Wharton classes.
