Can EMBA be done along with a full-time MIS program? [#permalink] New post 10 Jan 2014, 13:40
I have 8 years of work experience in US with extensive managerial exposure. I am located in Memphis, TN and there are no good MBA schools in the state. Since moving out of town is not an option, I am looking at the Executive/Part-Time MBA options in Chicago, Austin, Dallas, etc. However due to my limited visa tenure, I will need to enroll into a full-time program for the student visa.

Considering my situation, I am planning to enroll into the full-time MS in MIS program at University of Memphis for 2 years while pursuing the EMBA from a ranked school. From some I have got the feedback that the MIS may have some common subjects with MBA. Pursuing the two degree together, is this doable as per rules in the universities? And do you think it will be too much of a stress to pursue both degrees?

Hi there,

That is a tough call; certainly there are dual-degrees out there where individuals pursue an MBA with a Masters in another area... but generally that is through one school and organized such that it is definitely manageable. In terms of the school rules etc, you'd need to check with each program, and certainly as you apply it may come up. When applying for a part-time MBA for example, especially a strong program, they will want to know what else you are planning to do alongside the degree, and most are working as well hence the part-time nature of the program. And yes it would certainly be a challenging workload to manage. You're welcome to ask advisors at either or both programs, but sounds like a difficult potential set-up. Wishing you the best in your decisions.
