MGM + MBA Dual Degree
Becoming an effective leader in today’s world of business requires an awareness and understanding based on real-world knowledge and hands-on experience; going beyond the theoretical and deep into the practical. The Master of Global Management (MGM) program at RRU has always been an excellent vehicle to gain international experience and understanding, and through a unique partnership with the Management Center Innsbruck (MCI) we’re able to offer our students an opportunity to gain additional international experience and a second master’s level degree. The International Dual Degree Program features an MGM from Royal Roads University and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in International Business from MCI.
This dual degree option is ideal for students in early- to mid-stages of their career, looking for opportunities to enhance their skills and gain new credentials while continuing to work full-time. To be eligible for this opportunity, students are required to successfully complete the first year of study in the MGM program in good standing while maintaining a B+ (3.33) or better GPA. Students also need to meet MCI's admission requirements to qualify for the dual degree option.
As this is an additional completion option, the tuition and fees for the dual degree program are higher than the base price of the MGM degree. Please contact us for additional information. Students are also responsible for air travel, meals, accommodations, sundries, and international travel costs (i.e. travel visas, passports).
Program Completion Model
The MCI component of the dual degree option includes a five-day, on-campus residency in Innsbruck, Austria, as well as two courses completed online. The courses are conducted in English in a cohort-based, blended model. Including the full MGM component at RRU, the dual degree can be completed in approximately 24 months.
The structure of the dual degree program follows a slightly different pathway than the current MGM offering at RRU. Instead of taking one of the existing MGM program completion options, you will complete a Major Research Project, similar in scope to the RRU MGM Project, but longer and more detailed. If you’d like to complete the Internship or Project Management options at RRU, you are welcome to do so, but please note there will be additional tuition costs for these programs.
