Admissions & Preparatory Courses
STEM majors at the University of Kentucky are eligible to apply for the STEM/MBA dual degree, which is coupled with the One Year MBA program. Submitted applications are considered on a rolling admissions cycle, so it is strongly recommended to apply early. We recommend applying by the first Priority Scholarship deadline which is February 15th. Each year, the final domestic application deadline for the One Year MBA program is May 11th and the international application deadline is January 15th (assuming there is still space in the program). Only STEM majors at the University of Kentucky qualify for this dual degree option, however other A&S majors from the University of Kentucky (and other institutions) can still apply for consideration into the One Year MBA program. Before applying, please review the Admissions Requirements, MBA Preparatory Courses and updated GMAT/GRE Waiver Policy
Program Description & Curriculum
Combine your technical expertise with a strong business knowledge.
In recognition of the increasing need for the integration of technology and business skills, the STEM/MBA dual degree program was established to give students with technical backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and mathematics additional leadership, critical thinking, communication, problem solving and team-building skills. While increasing their knowledge in areas such as economics, finance, marketing, management, supply chain, operations, and more; we believe STEM graduates equipped with an MBA will have the technical, analytical and business skills necessary to lead strategic initiatives in the high-tech, global business environment.
