As you explore the MBA program, you may want to consider the benefits of having two graduate degrees and/or a graduate certificate from Penn State in addition to the MBA. Our online MBA program concentrations are structured in a way that they not only serve as MBA electives, but they also serve as part of a certificate program, and for many, a full master's program as well. Depending on your career goals, you may be able to complete a second course of degree study (or add an extra class or two and receive a certificate) — concurrently with the MBA — with significantly less investment and time spent in school by taking these courses of study independently.
You may also be able to pursue a concurrent degree in academic areas outside of what is offered via the MBA concentrations online.
If you wish to pursue a concurrent degree or certificate, please contact the Penn State Online MBA Managing Director, Stacey Dorang Peeler, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
