The leadership and management skills acquired through Booth’s MBA program are complemented by rigorous theory, programming, and applications knowledge learned through the University of Chicago’s Department of Computer Science and its Masters Program in Computer Science.

A hybrid of business and technology, the MBA/MPCS joint degree experience has given Yun the tools to analyze any business situation from its technical roots to business strategies.

Program Structure

In order to earn a dual MBA and computer science degree, students complete 14 Booth-only courses (+LEAD) and seven to nine MPCS-only courses. This program can be completed in two years if the student passes placement exams and avoids having to take the two immersion classes; however, if the two immersion classes need to be taken, the student should realistically budget 2.5 years to complete the program to avoid heavy course loads each quarter.

The MBA/computer science degree is eligible for optional practical training STEM extension following completion of the degree (applicable to F-1 or J-1 visa-holding students—Full-Time students only).

Tuition

Tuition is assessed on a per-course basis at the Chicago Booth rate for all courses for both degrees.

Admissions Process

Interested applicants may apply to both programs concurrently or during their first year of residency in either program (Current students please read Eligibility Requirements below.) Admissions decisions are made independently of one another. Inquiries regarding the admissions process for the MPCS should be directed to the Masters Program in Computer Science.

Eligibility Requirements: Booth students who wish to undertake the joint degree with MPCS must be admitted to and begin the MPCS portion of the joint degree before completing 1100 units of Booth course credit (which includes enrollment in computer science immersion coursework, if applicable). A Booth student registered in 1150 units or more is not eligible for the joint degree. MPCS students who wish to undertake the joint degree with Booth must be admitted to and begin the MBA portion of the joint degree before completing 400 units of MPCS course credit. (MPCS immersion courses are prerequisite courses and are not included in the 400 units of MPCS course credit.) An MPCS student registered in 500 units or more is not eligible for the joint degree.
