BBA Dual Degrees

The Ross School of Business offers the option for BBA students to pursue undergraduate dual degrees with one of several different units within the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Applicants interested in dual degrees must be admitted by both degree programs independently.  Approved dual degrees programs include:

  • Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design
  • College of Engineering
  • College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
  • School of Kinesiology (Sport Management program)
  • School of Music, Theatre & Dance
Students interested in pursuing dual degrees are encouraged to talk with an Academic Advisor. Students must be in good academic standing in order to pursue dual degrees. Students will work with Academic Advisors in both degree programs to create a course plan that meets requirements. As part of the dual degrees application, students are required to submit a course plan. For further information regarding degree requirements and degree course planning tools that are unique to a particular dual degree program, please use the menu to the right.
 
Dual degree students are required to have a home school on record. The home school determines academic and registration policies. Each semester, students must be enrolled for all classes under their home school, regardless of the courses taken.
 
Students pursuing the following dual degrees are required to maintain the Ross School of Business as the home school:
  • College of Engineering
  • College of Literature, Science, and the Arts

Students pursuing the following dual degrees may select either the Ross School of Business or their partner school as their home school, and should discuss this decision with their Academic Advisors:

  • Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design
  • School of Kinesiology (Sport Management program)
  • School of Music, Theatre & Dance
Students are responsible for scheduling meetings with Academic Advisors in both programs to track progress toward graduation. Students must apply for graduation from each degree program, along with completing any other required documents. For all dual degrees programs, both degrees must be awarded simultaneously. If any degree requirement is incomplete for either degree, neither degree will be awarded. Completion of both degree requirements results in two different degree citations on the transcript and in two separate diplomas.
