MSN/MBA Program

The MSN/MBA program is one of only six in the State of California and is designed for nurses interested in preparation for higher administration positions and/or owning a business related to healthcare. This is a 68-unit program that allows the nurse to complete two degrees at once. The degrees for joint/dual program students are conferred to degree candidates upon completion of all of the program’s requirements (i.e. both degrees), and are conferred simultaneously. Furthermore, degree candidates are not eligible to participate in the annual commencement ceremony until they have either completed all program requirements or are enrolled in their final courses during the spring semester immediately preceding the ceremony.
