International Dual Degree

A dual-degree program is now available in cooperation with the Hochschule Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences in Schmalkalden, Germany. This program provides students with the opportunity to study abroad for 2 consecutive quarters in addition to the required coursework of the MBA program. It combines the Master of Business Administration degree from Eastern Washington University with the Master of Art degree in International Business and Economics from the Hochschule Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences in Schmalkalden, Germany. All coursework is taught in English.  This cooperative program enables students to earn both degrees in less time than if undertaken separately. Those enrolling in the dual-degree program must be admitted through the Graduate Studies Office and by the MBA program. The student also must be fully admissible into the MBA program at the time of entry.

To apply for MBA/MA dual degree, you need to submit a statement of intent demonstrating a level of knowledge and intellectual maturity. Your statement should cover the following questions:

1. Why do you want an MA degree from HS Schmalkalden, Germany?

2. What do you intend to do with an international dual degree?

3. How will you be an embassador for our MBA program in Germany?

If you are interested, you must contact the MBA program coordinator by October 15th. Once your letter of intent and academic transcripts are submitted to the MBA faculty committee, you will be contacted to schedule an interview with the MBA committee. Based on the interview, you will be notified of acceptance or rejection.
