The Dual Masters degree program in Computer Science and MBA is one of the available Dual Graduate Degree Programs at the University of Bridgeport.
The Masters of Science Degree in Computer Science is intended to prepare individuals with a strong mathematical, scientific, or technical background for entry into the computer science field at an advanced level and for further study leading to the doctorate degree.
The MBA is a course of study intended to prepare individuals whose undergraduate background is in business.
The MBA Program requires 30 to 54 semester hours of study depending on the student’s academic background and level of academic achievement.
