Additional Requirements for Specific Degree Programs
BBA/MSIST 4+1 Program
The MSIST degree can also be combined with a bachelor's degree through GWSB's new 4+1 Program, which enables students to complete both a bachelor's and a master's degree in five years.
MBA/Master of Science in Information Systems Technology
For students pursuing a MBA and a Master of Science in Information Systems Technology dual degree program, all requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled. In the dual MBA/MSIST program, up to 24 credits may be double-counted toward degree requirements for the MBA/MSIST as follows:
- 12 credits of required ISTM core courses may be counted as electives toward the MBA
- 12 credits of DNSC, DAT, and/or other ISTM courses completed as electives for the MBA may count toward MSIST electives
Students may pursue a dual degree in any MBA program. Part-time students take courses for both programs simultaneously. Full-time students take courses for the Global MBA in their first year and then complete the remainder of the degree requirements simultaneously. In both cases, the degrees may be conferred sequentially.
