The Bauer College of Business and the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston offer a concurrent degree program that enables students to prepare for careers in which the understanding of both business and engineering is critical. This program provides students with the opportunity to complete the degree requirements of Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) and Master of Industrial Engineering (M.I.E.) with a major in Engineering Management in a shorter time period than if the degrees were pursued separately. The intent of this program is that upon completion of the requirements of each degree, both degrees would be awarded simultaneously.

Students interested in the M.B.A./M.I.E. concurrent degree program must follow the separate application procedures for admission to the M.B.A. program and the M.I.E. program. All persons must be admitted separately 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 (M.I.E.) and the Bauer College of Business (M.B.A.) academic programs should occur within a period of one calendar year.


 Students applying for the Master of Industrial Engineering (M.I.E.) program are required to have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited program in engineering or a related discipline.


The Bauer College of Business requires concurrent degree program students to complete the core M.B.A. courses and an additional nine hours of graduate business electives. The Cullen College of Engineering requires the student to complete 24 hours of Industrial Engineering courses. Upon completion of these curriculum requirements for both degrees, 12 semester hours from the graduate engineering curriculum will apply toward the M.B.A. degree and 12 semester hours of graduate business curriculum courses will apply toward the M.I.E. degree.
