There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I'd appreciate your thoughts on the usefulness of a joint degree. Basically, I'm worried about spreading myself too thin. Is it too much to pursue two degrees at the same time? Can you adequately complete your coursework? Can you invest the time required to build a meaningful network in two schools?
Re: MBA/MPP Joint Degree Program - Is it a good idea? [#permalink]

With MBA/MPP joint degrees, you take three years to complete both programs, as opposed to the four years it would take you to complete both if you did them separately. You can do it in one less year because one or both programs will accept fewer credits to fulfill degree requirements.
In any given term, you won't take more classes than students who are earning only MBAs or only MPPs.
Most programs have ways of immersing you in each school, often by having you do one full year in each or by participating in pre-term kick-off type activities. You generally end up having a larger network because of this.
