Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Environmental Science and Policy


Return to: Programs of Study

Overview


The MBA/MS in Environmental Science and Policy (ES&P) combines MBA requirements with advanced coursework in the department of International Development, Community and Environment. The program focuses on topics such as environmental science, environmental law, sustainable production and development, urban ecology, negotiation and mediation and quantitative modeling.

 

Graduates from the MBA/MS in ES&P are poised for leadership in environmental consulting firms, international development companies, corporate social responsibility offices, government agencies and nonprofit groups around the world.

Dual Degree MBA/MS in ES&P Requirements


The MBA/MS Environmental Science and Policy dual degree program requires the completion of 22.5 graduate units. Five units of the 22.5 units of coursework that a student takes are allowed to overlap and count for both degrees. Students complete the core requirements of both academic programs, as well as electives for both degrees. Dual degree students complete the Dual Degree Capstone IDCE 348  (1 unit in total) in place of the MBA Experiential Learning Requirement course and MS Research Paper requirement. Students begin this project at the end of their second year and complete it during their third year of the program.

ES&P Required Core Courses


The Master’s program in ES&P requires 5 core ES&P course units and 7 units of ES&P electives. Because some courses can overlap and count for both the MBA and MS degree, dual degree students complete fewer ES&P elective courses than other MS students. You should tailor your elective courses toward your area of specialization.

To learn more about the MS ES&P required core courses, please go to the 

  information page.

MBA Required Core Courses


The M.B.A curriculum consists of a combination of seven-week course modules and full-semester, 14-week courses. Modular courses count as 1/2 unit each, while a full semester course counts as one unit. Dual degree students complete 10.5 units of required MBA core coursework, plus the 1 unit dual degree capstone, which is taken in place of the MBA Experiential Learning Requirement course, and 1 unit of MBA elective coursework. Because some courses can overlap and count for both the MBA and MS degree, dual degree students complete fewer elective courses than MBA students. MBA/ESP dual degree students complete the Sustainability concentration in the MBA program. A dual concentration is optional for dual degree students, but would require 2 - 3 more units of MBA elective coursework. 

 

Completion of a graduate internship is required for all students except: those who have 3 years of relevant professional work experience; those with five or more years of professional work experience, those with full-time employment during the length of the program, and those who are participating in an exchange program (ex. Sorbonne, Trier, etc.). It may be possible to waive these requirements. Visit a member of the Stevenish Career Management Center for more information.

 

All courses are worth one unit, unless otherwise specified
