Hult Dual Degree Program


Get the skills for the job you want

Standing out in today’s crowded job market is all about skills. Can you demonstrate to potential employers that you have the skills to do the job they’re hiring for—from your first day on the job? Hult’s Dual Degree is the ultimate skills builder. Combining two degrees to give you the specific skillset you need for the job you want is a smart solution for business students looking for a competitive edge.

What is a Dual Degree?

A Dual Degree sees you earn two postgraduate degrees in different subject areas. You start the second degree immediately after completing the first. Think of a Dual Degree as two standalone degrees, each offering specialized knowledge in addition to the foundational work completed during a traditional single degree.

How long does it take to complete a Dual Degree?

Hult’s Dual Degree programs take 18 months to complete. The first degree takes 12 months and includes both core courses and elective courses. The second degree takes 6 months and includes core courses only.

How is a Dual Degree different from a specialization?

A Dual Degree is similar to a double major or a specialization in that you study two distinct areas of business, but with a Dual Degree you study your second subject in much greater depth and graduate with two standalone degrees.

Who should take a Dual Degree?

Individuals early in their careers who are still exploring their professional paths could benefit from starting with a generalist degree like an MBA or MIB before deciding on specializations through elective courses offered within these programs.

Can I do an internship on a Dual Degree?

Yes, in fact a Dual Degree allows for a longer internship period than a single degree.


How it works

Earn two degrees and graduate faster

If you choose to further your studies with a full-time Dual Degree program, your first degree will follow a standard one-year master’s or MBA program, on your home campus, with the opportunity to take any electives at any of our campuses. You’ll then pursue your accelerated second degree, which has no elective courses, at our London, Boston, or San Francisco campus.

The one-year MBA programs and Master’s in International Business can only be taken first. For your second degree, choose from any of the following master’s programs at our London, Boston, or San Francisco campus:

Choosing your Dual Degree

Become an expert in your field

Choosing the right Dual Degree combination will depend on your career goals, both immediately after graduation and in the longer term. If you’re looking to boost your all-around business skills and have a specific industry in mind, a generalist business degree (such as a Master’s in Management or MBA) makes an ideal first degree. Followed by a second specialist degree in the industry you want to go into (such as finance, marketing, or analytics).

Generalist business + specialist Dual Degree combinations

The most popular Dual Degree combinations at Hult are taking a general business degree, Master’s in Management (MIB) or Master’s in Business Administration (MBA), as a first 12-month degree and following that with a second 6-month accelerated degree in a specialist area, such as marketing, finance, or analytics.

This type of Dual Degree combination is ideal as the first degree builds the essential business, leadership and foundational skills.

The second degree builds on this with a deep dive into a specialist subject, equipping students with specialist skills and expertise within their chosen area. While taking a specialization as part of a general business degree can offer an overview, a Dual Degree offers students more time and greater depth to truly become an expert in their specialist field.
