The Erb Institute offers a world-renowned MBA/MS dual-degree program that will help you integrate your personal purpose into your career. We provide real-world experiences and project funding to maximize and individualize your time at the University of Michigan. Our graduates are pursuing careers across a wide variety of industries and roles, contributing to both social and environmental impact.

A 2N D D E G R E E : A Master’s of Science from the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) is an opportunity to add scientific rigor to already impressive MBA credentials. SEAS offers six fields of study to choose from: Behavior, Education, and Communication Conservation Ecology Environmental Informatics Environmental Justice Environmental Policy and Planning Sustainable Systems

MASTER’S PROJECTS: Through SEAS, you will also complete a Master’s Project, an interdisciplinary capstone experience that enables you to develop solutions to pressing problems that real-world clients face. These year-long team projects are both student-designed and student-led and give you the opportunity to work on a long-term basis with a client of your choosing.

FUNDING: An additional year at SEAS doesn’t necessarily equate to more debt for average Erb students. Erb students have access to more funding opportunities than the traditional MBA student through Erb directly, as well as Ross, SEAS and Rackham. Many Erb students have also served as GSIs, which allows them to waive tuition for the term. Selection into the Dow Fellows program awards $20K per student. Project Funding: Erb Institute dual-degree students have the opportunity to drive business sustainability impact, build their capacity, and network to further their career goals through Impact Project and Partnership Project funding. Erb Institute students are invited to design bold, high-impact initiatives for Impact Project funding to support self-directed learning and career-focused experiences.
