Concurrent Degree Programs

The sheer reputational strength of the Nicholas School concurrent degree programs is reason enough to consider them. The most appreciated benefit is the opportunity to graduate with two Duke degrees in less time and with less expense than if you were to complete the programs asynchronously. The options provided by the Nicholas School are hand-selected based upon the needs of our students who want to bring additional value to employers and to the industry in which they enter. We welcome students to pursue a master’s degree at the Nicholas School concurrently with another degree program.

Below are our concurrent degree combinations:

Find information about advising, communications, and requirements for those in concurrent degree programs at All Concurrent Degrees – Requirements & Information.


Applying is easy! Simply apply to each program separately* while keeping in mind the deadlines and requirements of each program. Applicants will be able to indicate interest in a concurrent degree on at least the Nicholas School application, if not both applications. Find MEM or MF application materials at Application Materials & Requirements.

*Applicants to the MEM/MF degree program apply with one application. Current Nicholas School students wishing to add the MEM or MF may add the concurrent degree by contacting the Nicholas School Registrar.


Remember that when you commit to the concurrent degree program, with reduced credits for each degree, you won’t receive either degree until you’ve completed all requirements for both degrees, including your Masters Project.
