MEM to MBA Program

Students completing the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program at WSU may be allowed to use up to 12 credit hours (four courses) in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at WSU if they pursue it (i.e., double-counting 12 credit hours between two programs).  The 12 credit hours will be completed by the student as a requirement for the MEM program and should be taken from the required courses in the MBA curriculum. The main objective of making this change is to provide the opportunity to students to pursue dual degrees (MEM and MBA) and structure the curriculum so that both programs can be completed within a reasonable time frame.  The double counting rule will allow students to complete both programs by taking 60 credit hours of coursework.  The MEM program must be completed before any courses can be applied to the MBA program.

Applied Learning

Students in the MBA program are required to complete an applied learning or research experience to graduate from the program. The requirement can be met by completing two core graduate courses: MKT 803/ MGMT 803 and MIS 874. These courses provide opportunities to to gain applied learning experiences through projects.
