The Business School and the Department of Bioengineering offer this degree option for students admitted into the Bioengineering MS program and the MBA program. This dual degree is an excellent opportunity for students who are planning a career in industry or as an entrepreneur. Bioengineering students including those who create medical devices, often launch their own venture upon graduation or thereafter. Business skills (especially in the areas of marketing, legal environments, and/or finance and operations) are critical to enhance the probability of venture success. A dual degree also opens up new doors with regard to career choice, either in business or in one's core field.
