Dual Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Lean Manufacturing

The Kettering University MSLM program is 40 quarter credit hours (10 courses) and UM-Flint MBA program ranges anywhere from 33 to 45 semester credit hours (11-15 courses), depending on Foundation waivers.  With the dual program, a student can earn both degrees and take 3-4 fewer courses.   

The MBA/MSLM will transfer up to 4 courses between programs and apply them toward both degrees.  A grade of B or better must be earned in each course for transfer.  Both degrees cannot be pursued concurrently and students are responsible for all the costs of completing the requirements at each university, including tuition and fees.  Students must apply to each program independently and be accepted to both.  Graduates will receive two diplomas, one from the University of Michigan (MBA) and one from Kettering University (MSLM).
