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. Students with a previous background in programming and/or Discrete Math can take exams to waive prerequisite coursework.


Tuition for Full-Time MBA students pursuing the Joint MBA/MPCS Program will be assessed through Chicago Booth at a flat rate for six quarters of enrollment. Pricing will differ from Booth's standard Full-Time MBA Program and final tuition amounts are made available in the spring. If a student takes more than 2400 units, they will be assessed the per course rate for any additional units.

Admissions Process

Applicants interested in the Joint MBA/MPCS degree will apply through Booth’s centralized, joint-application process. Applicants should complete the Chicago Booth Full-Time MBA application, and select the MBA/MPCS as their program of interest. A MBA/MPCS program supplement will be available for completion within your Booth application. The supplement contains MPCS specific questions that will be reviewed by the MPCS admissions team along with your full Booth application. For complete consideration, applicants should complete the MBA application and the joint degree program supplement in the same application round prior to submitting the application. Applicants may complete the MPCS supplement in a subsequent round and will be considered as space permits.
Admissions decisions for each program will be made independently. Applicants may receive a decision admitting them to the Booth Full-Time MBA program only or admitting them to the Joint MBA/MPCS program. Additional information can be found on the Joint MBA/MPCS Program page on the MPCS website.

Admission to the MPCS only requires an application directly to the MPCS program adhering to their requirements and deadlines. More information can be found on the MPCS website.

Eligibility Requirements: Admission to the Joint MBA/MPCS program is completed as part of the Chicago Booth Full-time MBA application process. Students who have already started their MBA or MPCS are not eligible for the joint degree. 

Part-Time Joint MPCS/MBA
This is the final opportunity for part-time students to apply to the MPCS/MBA joint degree program. Students who started in the Evening or Weekend MBA program in Spring 2023 or before and who will not have surpassed 1,000 units for the MBA prior to enrolling in a MPCS course in Autumn 2024 are eligible to apply. To gain access to the application, please email the Evening/Weekend admissions team to complete a short supplement application. This supplement contains MPCS-specific questions that will be reviewed by the MPCS admissions team. Booth will provide your MBA application and materials to MPCS for a holistic review. Students who are admitted will begin taking MPC.
