Cullen College of Engineering  > Department of Industrial Engineering  > Industrial Engineering, MIE/MBA


The Cullen College of Engineering and the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston offer a concurrent degree program that enables students to prepare for careers in which the understanding of both engineering science and business studies is critical.  This program provides students with the opportunity to complete the degree requirements for the Master of Business Administration and the Master of Industrial Engineering in a shorter period of time than if the two degrees were pursued separately.

For more information, please visit the MIE/MBA Concurrent Degree Program page.

Admission Requirements


Students applying for the combined MBA/MIE program are required to have a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited program in engineering.

Students interested in the MIE/MBA concurrent degree program must follow the separate application procedures for admission to the MBA program and the MIE program. Students must be admitted to each of the programs and admission to one has no official bearing upon admission to the other. Upon acceptance, enrollment in both the Cullen College of Engineering (MIE) and the C. T. Bauer College of Business (MBA) academic programs should occur within a period of one year.

Upon acceptance by each program, the applicant must petition the MIE/MBA Directors for admissions to the concurrent degree program. Each school will have a designated Director for the MIE/MBA program to provide academic advising for concurrent degree program students.

For more on the application process, please visit the How to Apply to UH Graduate School web page.

Degree Requirements


Credit hours required for this degree: 30.0

The MIE/MBA course requirements for this degree objective are the same as for the MIE, except that up to four courses from the C. T. Bauer College of Business are accepted as electives. The intent of this program is that, upon completion of the requirements for each degree, the student shall be awarded the two degrees simultaneously.
