Joint MBA/MS Industrial/Organizational Psychology

Students will spend the first year in the IO Psychology cohort completing I/O coursework. Beginning in the second year, students will join the Greehey MBA Cohort and begin taking the regular sequence of classes. In addition to the normal Greehey MBA curriculum, students will need to complete one additional IO course each semester in the second year. Students will need to take a total of 12 hours each semester during the second year. During the Fall Semester of the third year, students will take the regular Greehey MBA coursework

The dual degree reduces the Greehey MBA from 33 credits to 27 credits (as it recognizes 6 credit hours from the IO degree). Students will be exempt from taking BA 6300 and BA 6301. The dual degree also reduces the IO degree from 40 credit hours to 34 credit hours by eliminating the current requirement of IO 6363 and 1 additional IO Elective.
