The Benefits of Getting a Second Master's Degree

Students who are interested in broadening their business knowledge have the option to earn two master’s degrees online from the Whitman School of Management for a reduced number of credits. With master’s degrees that complement each other, students can increase their specialized expertise to set themselves apart in the job market and expand their career opportunities.

Once enrolled in a master’s program and for up to one year after graduating, students can apply for a second online program and complete the two for fewer credits than if they completed the individual degree requirements.

Students may utilize this opportunity if all core requirements are met and coursework is properly planned to take advantage of shared courses.
