Reinventing the MBA to meet today’s technological demands

It has never been more important—and necessary—for business leaders to understand the impact of technology, even in the most traditional corporate sectors.

To meet this demand, and give our students the ability to stand out and thrive in today’s marketplace, Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business is offering a new full-time MBA degree concept: MBA x Computer Science.

This innovative, one-of-a-kind MBA degree is designed to give students a comprehensive framework in business and leadership. Combined with technical knowledge and skills in computer science, this interdisciplinary program prepares students to harness technology in a world where intelligent machines are expanding what’s possible.
Students in our MBA x Computer Science program will choose one concentration in business and one concentration in computer science through a partnership with Northeastern’s Khoury College of Computer Sciences. They will also complete a corporate residency—a distinctive component of the Northeastern MBA program that is the hallmark of graduate experiential learning.

No. We encourage applicants with undergraduate degrees from all backgrounds to apply.

If you have a degree in computer science, you can begin your two-year MBA x Computer Science program immediately.

If your degree is not in computer science, you will start with 16 credits of computer science bridge courses within the Khoury College of Computer Sciences. Once you successfully complete this coursework, you will transition into our full-time MBA x Computer Science program.
The MBA x Computer Science program is enrolling for Fall 2019. You will apply directly to our MBA x Computer Science.

Advanced business education is a critical component in helping people and industries navigate challenges with digital convergence and turn them into opportunities.
