Are you a current undergraduate MSU student interested in completing your bachelor’s and master’s degree at the same time, for a great price, resulting in an exceptional start to your professional career? Of course you are!

What Is Dual Enrollment?

MSU students with either 1.) a 3.5+ GPA or 2.) a 3.0-3.49 GPA with an GRE/GMAT test score accepted by the MSMR program can dual-enroll during either fall or spring semester of their senior year and double-count up to 11 credits from the MSMR program toward both their bachelor’s degree and the Master of Science in Marketing Research degree.

Students from any major/college are eligible.

Example

Here is one way dual-enrollment could work for you:

Let’s say that you are an MSU student who will be graduating with your bachelor’s degree in spring with a 3.5+ GPA (or a 3.0-3.49 GPA with a GMAT/GRE test score accepted by the MSMR program), and the only courses you have left needed to graduate are:

  1. MKT 310
  2. MKT 313
  3. MKT 460
  4. Two-credit elective of your choosing

You can apply to the MSMR program for the spring semester and, if selected, the 11 credits listed above will just be considered “placeholder” courses. You will end up dropping the courses above and only taking the MSMR program courses and 11 credits of those MSMR courses will double-count to fulfill both bachelor’s and master’s degree requirements. The 11 dual-enrolled credits will be billed at the undergraduate rate, saving you money on your total master’s degree cost.

Courses Eligible

  • You can use any MKT core, MKT elective, or general elective course(s) for dual-enrollment
  • Business core courses that are not MKT courses cannot be used for dual-enrollment. However, dual-enrollment can be flexible, and you are able to dual-enroll while still completing other bachelor’s core courses, so if you are interested, please email us your schedule and questions, and we will gladly assist you in developing your dual-enrollment plan.

Dual Enrollment Benefits

  1. The dual-enrolled credits will be billed at the undergraduate rate, saving you money on your master’s degree cost.
  2. No work experience is required to apply to the MSMR program, though internship experience is valued and considered in the application process.

  4. Nearly 85 percent of MSMR students are placed within full-time jobs before they graduate.
  5. MSMR graduates have excellent salary and career progression.
