If you are a current BBA student who is serious about applying for dual degrees, the following information will guide you on your next steps. NON-ROSS STUDENTS: If you have not yet been admitted to Ross, you are not eligible to apply for a dual degree with Business.
Completing each of the following steps will prepare you to apply for a dual degree:
1. Obtain admittance to both the Ross School of Business and a program in another School/College of your choice.
2. Review the information and decision-making aids for Prospective BBA Dual Degree Students.
3. Familiarize yourself with your preferred dual degree. Acquaint yourself with the designated requirements, details, and course planning template, customized for each dual degree program.
