Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Joint Degrees

The leaders of today and the future must find solutions to pressing issues such as global health, sustainable energy sources, and food shortages. These challenges are not just business problems, health problems, or environmental problems—they are problems at the intersection of business, law, policy, health, energy, and the environment. With top graduate programs across all of these disciplines, Duke is uniquely positioned to provide an interdisciplinary education that will enable our students and alumni to be leaders who can take on and solve these challenges.

Duke has cultivated four joint degree programs between Fuqua and the Schools of Law, Medicine, Policy, and Environment. These rigorous programs prepare students to be a global leader who can tackle today's issues from multiple perspectives and who can bring about needed change. 


We offer the following Duke University joint degree options in conjunction with our Daytime MBA degree:
