Due to the rapidly growing interest in the intersection between Engineering and Business, and how the approaches to the issues of sustainability, energy, the environment and corporate social responsibility, and the Department of Energy, Environmental and chemical Engineering (EECE) and the Olin School of Business launched a dual degree program - MEng/MBA.
An interdisciplinary approach to these issues provides students with effective, innovative and critical thinking skills to find effective and impactful solutions.
The Olin MBA curriculum offers a comprehensive set of required and elective courses built upon a foundation of critical-thinking and leadership skills. Olin MBAs are able to shape the curriculum to meet their unique personal objectives, incorporating the MEng degree requirements.
Hours Required for MBA

Hours Required for MEng

Apply to and be accepted by both programs
When to apply
Must apply to 2nd program before the end of the 1st year. It is preferable that the student applies to both prior to matriculation.
GMAT or GRE
Students pursuing the MEng/MBA option may, of course, choose whichever core courses and pathway electives they prefer for the MEng. However, we expect many will choose to pursue the Energy & Environmental Management Pathway, which will complement the MBA course work. Both MEng and MBA degrees will be awarded simultaneously at the completion of the program.
