Dual Degrees

There are many options for students who want to continue their education from undergrad and enroll in a graduate program at Daniels. A master’s in a business discipline can complement any undergraduate degree and make you more competitive in the job market. 

Whether you’re a sophomore or junior here at DU who wants to start taking graduate-level courses, or you’re a senior or recent graduate from any school who wants to add business fundamentals to your bachelor’s degree, Daniels offers a path for you.

  • 4+1 Programs: Designed for DU sophomores or juniors in any major to begin taking graduate level classes as an undergrad. This lets you shave off elective credits and graduate with both degrees in 5 years.
